Sweet, spicy, tart, crunchy—this colorful salad can be served on its own for lunch, or pair with roast chicken or fish for a bigger meal. Slideshow: Fall Produce Recipes

How to Make It

Step 1    

Preheat the oven to 425°. In a large bowl, toss the squash with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Spread the squash on a baking sheet in a single layer and roast in the oven for about 40 minutes, until tender and golden, tossing once halfway through.

Step 2    

While the squash roasts, whisk together the garlic, vinegar and mustard in a small bowl. Slowly add the remaining 4 tablespoons olive oil, whisking the whole time. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Step 3    

When the squash is out of the oven, toss the arugula with the dressing in a large salad bowl. Add the roasted squash, walnuts and dried cherries and gently toss together. Serve immediately.
