Warm Roasted Squash and Pomegranate Salad

I love roasted squash in the cooler months!  It is packed with nutrients and has a naturally sweet flavor.  This salad combines it with colorful pomegranate seeds, and a tangy spicy dressing.  It is healthy, delicious and perfect for serving with your holiday meal!

  1. Preheat the oven to 375F degrees.

  3. Place the squash in a bowl, along with all other ingredients and toss together until well combined.
  4. Serve!
