Ingredients
Roasted Potiron:
  • 4 oz Pumpkin
  • 4 oz Acorn squash
  • 4 oz Butternut squash
  • 4 oz Spaghetti Squash
  • 2 oz Red peppers
  • 1 oz Olive oil
  • ½ oz Sage
  • ½ oz Thyme
  • ½ oz Oregano

Holiday Balsamic Salad

  • ½ cup Balsamic Dressing
  • ½ cup fresh orange juice
  • 3 tablespoons Brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon Nutmeg
  • 3 oz Mixed baby field greens (or your choice of salad lettuce)

Directions

Roasted Potiron: Core and de-seed vegetables.  Cut into ½ inch slices.  In a stainless steel mixing bowl, toss vegetables with all seasoning.  Place vegetables on a lined baking sheet and bake on 400°F for 30 minutes, turning the vegetables over halfway through ensure both sides are cooked evenly. Take out of oven and let cool down.

Holiday Balsamic Dressing: In a small sauce pot, bring all ingredients except mixed baby field greens to a boil.  Reduce heat to a simmer until sauce is slightly thickened.

Place the Roasted Potiron on a plate and add the mixed baby field greens.  Drizzle the Holiday Balsamic Dressing over the salad and enjoy.
