Roasted Squash and Arugula Salad with Bacon, Pecans, and Goat Cheese

04

Hi there. Allow me to introduce you to your new favorite salad for this time of  year. You should totally make this for Thanksgiving. Everyone knows Thanksgiving is all about the side dishes since the protein of choice, turkey, is subpar at best.

This salad has it all. Slightly spicy arugula? Check. Caramelized butternut squash? You bet. Smoky bacon? Duh. Creamy goat cheese? Ding ding ding. Toasty pecans? Yes sir. Seriously, I cannot sing this salad’s praises highly enough. I do love salad, don’t get me wrong, but it’s rare that they are my favorite part of a meal. We had this alongside a simple roasted chicken – which is, indeed, one of my all time favorite meals – and this salad stole the show.

I…don’t have much more to say other than go make this, likerightnow.
