Delicata Squash Salad

delicata salad

Believe or not, we STILL have some delicata squash hanging around our counters. And while it was VERY tempting to make some more Inside-Out Ravioli, I decided to completely shift gears and try to make a salad instead. I found and followed a great recipe at Chow.com for a Roasted Delicata Squash Salad. I did make some changes though from the recipe posted online.

I used two shallots instead of one (since that plus the olive oil and vinegar make up the “dressing” and we seemed to need a little more than what the recipe called for). I also used Red Wine Vinegar instead of Sherry Vinegar. (Trader Joe’s didn’t have sherry vinegar and I didn’t feel like driving all over to find it.) The same was true with ricotta salata, so I used feta instead. (I didn’t add the Saba either.) And then instead of buying and using pumpkin seeds, I just roasted and used the delicata seeds instead. (They taste just as good!)

All in all, despite my variations, the salad was VERY tasty and I would have never thought of that combination without the Chow.com Recipe. This salad would be a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner addition as well. For those who want to add some greens to your feast, here are more last minute salad ideas for the Thursday meal. Happy Thanksgiving!

  1. So glad to see you enjoyed the Inside-Out Ravioli!

    This salad looks wonderfully festive. Never too much Delicata in the crisper if you ask me.
