Brilliant Butternut Squash Salad

Listen Pumpkin, you’re great and all but we’re really into Butternut Squash right now!  We are geeking out over it’s delicious flavor and texture when roasted just right.  It’s one of the very best things that comes with this time of year.  Instead of just roasting a squash and calling it good, dice it up and add it to this phenomenal salad.  It’s a meal within itself!  We used a beautiful bowl and plates from Bauer Pottery here in LA.  They make for the most festive serveware!
