Your seasonal fall menus need a fresh counterpoint, and this Fall Salad with Caramelized Squash + Maple Orange Dressing is IT. To make it, roast cubed up butternut squash and while it roasts, prepare the rest of the salad. I can’t get enough of the dressing in this recipe, which essentially marinates the kale so every bite is super flavorful. Check out the “Let’s Riff” section at the bottom of the recipe because spoiler alert: this salad is endlessly riffable. Swap in your favorite seasonal veg in place of the butternut squash, get creative with the toppings, and make it your own.
