You will need:

  • 1 Delicata squash or also called summer squash
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 full cups of arugula
  • 1-2 tablespoons raw sunflower seeds
  • Salt and pepper to season

For the dressing:

  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper to season

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Wash the squash and dry well. Cut squash in half, take out all the seeds and slice into ½ inch thick slices. Drizzle the squash with olive oil and place in a single layer onto a baking sheet. Bake for about 20-30 minutes until the squash is tender and golden brown, flipping halfway.

In a small bowl, whisk together the Dijon, balsamic, honey and slowly add the olive oil, season with salt and pepper.

Once the squash is cooled, combine the arugula with the dressing and top with the squash.

After plating, sprinkle with the sunflower seeds.
