Delicata Squash Salad

On my quest to lighten things up after my carb binge the last few weeks, this Delicata Squash Salad is exactly what I want!

All the roasted delicata squash, tons of peppery arugula, some salty cheese, pistachios to give it some crunch and more! It’s perfect. Although the cheese is optional if you’re doing the Whole 30 this month like every single person in my life besides me! Works for lunch, or dinner, and most definitely leftovers. And it’s really everything you could want in a main course salad this time of year.

And if you haven’t gotten on the delicata squash train – what are you waiting for?!? It’s so good, so easy to prep, and there is NO PEELING, which is legit the worst part about prepping some forms of squash. So delicata for the win all day, every day. Get into this one guys… you won’t be disappointed.

    Thank you for introducing us to this wonderful squash. I love the flavor and not having to peel it!! I have just ordered seeds to grow my own – we love it that much!!

    This is my favorite squash too! I also clean then roast the seeds. They are delicious. This sounds delicious! Any other squash sub for delicate? Markets out here near Philadelphia are all out.
    Thanks for your great ideas

    Um, this salad was UH-MAZING! I couldn’t find delicata so I used acorn. The flavors just came together so well I couldn’t stop saying wow as I was eating. Looking forward to making it again!

    This salad is completely amazing! I got sucked in by the beautiful IG photo of it, but it tastes even better than I thought it would! Thank you!
