Asian Salad with Roasted Delicata Squash

Asian Salad with Roasted Delicata Squash - A Family Feast

Today’s recipe for this delicious Asian Salad with Roasted Delicata Squash has been a ‘work in progress’ over the last two days here on A Family Feast!

Earlier this week, we showed you how to make some delicious Roasted Delicata Squash. And yesterday we shared our Everyday Asian Dressing recipe – a very simple and versatile dressing that can be used on salads (like today’s recipe) as well as tossed over pasta!

Asian Salad with Roasted Delicata Squash - A Family Feast

So today – we’re combining the two recipes into a wonderful Asian salad by combining the roasted delicata squash (minus the maple sage coating from the earlier recipe), fresh baby spinach and green beans, plus scallions, cilantro and cashews and then tossing them with that fantastic Asian dressing!

This Asian salad with roasted delicata squash is a wonderful light lunch served with some warm crusty bread – or it’s a great side dish served with some chicken or fish for a heartier dinner!

And – be sure to come back tomorrow because we’re sharing a delicious Asian Chicken Noodle Salad that also uses the Everyday Asian Dressing.  It’s delicious!
