Delicata squash salad is a perfect fall or winter side dish! This one features caramelized roasted squash, pomegranate seeds, and a tangy vinaigrette.


  • 1 recipe Roasted Delicata Squash
  • 1 large shallot
  • 2 tablespoons chopped pistachios
  • 5 ounces baby mixed greens (about 5 cups)
  • 1/3 cup pomegranate seeds
  • 2 tablespoons roasted salted pepitas
  • 2 ounces soft goat cheese (omit for vegan)
  • Honey Mustard Dressing (use maple syrup for vegan)


  1. Make the Roasted Delicata Squash. (This takes about 25 to 30 minutes total; finish the remaining prep while the squash roasts. Or you can roast it in advance, store refrigerated, and reheat in a 400 degree oven until it’s warm, about 5 to 10 minutes.)
  2. Make the Honey Mustard Dressing
  3. Thinly slice the shallot. If needed, chop the pistachios. 
  4. To serve, place the greens on a serving plate. Top with roasted delicata squash, shallot, pistachios, pomegranate seeds, pepitas, and goat cheese dollops. Drizzle with Honey Mustard Dressing and serve.
