It's almost that time of year again! Fall is just around the corner and we have a light (and easy!) Autumn salad to get you and your family feeling festive.
1 (2-lb.) butternut squash, peeled and cut into 1/2-in. cubes
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup dried green lentils
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon red wine vinegar
2 cups arugula
1 tablespoon crumbled feta cheese
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Place squash, oil, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and pepper in a bowl; toss to combine. Spread mixture in a single layer on a foil-lined baking sheet. Bake at 400°F for 28 to 30 minutes, tossing once halfway through.
While squash bakes, place lentils in a medium saucepan. Cover with water to 3 inches above lentils; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until lentils are tender. Drain. Stir in remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, cumin, and red wine vinegar. Let stand 10 minutes.
Arrange arugula on a plate. Top with 1 cup butternut squash
