Preheat the oven to 375 F. Peel the butternut squash, seed it and cut into cubes. Toss in a bowl with olive oil, salt and pepper. Spread cubes on a baking sheet and bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from oven; let cool. Toss all salad ingredients (except the squash) together in a large bowl. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the dressing ingredients. Add the butternut squash to the salad and drizzle the dressing on top. Toss, serve and enjoy! Serves 4 (2 cups each).
