Ingredients
  

  • 1 1/2 pounds butternut squash peeled and small dice (about 3 1/2 cups)
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil plus more for the squash
  • Kosher salt and Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 small shallots halved and thinly sliced
  • 6 tablespoons tahini
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons Pure maple syrup
  • 2 garlic clove
  • 5 ounces baby arugula
  • 1/4 cup pomegranate seeds
  • 1/3 cup pepitas toasted

Instructions
 

  • Roast The Squash: Heat oven to 400°F and arrange a rack in the middle. Place squash on a rimmed baking sheet, drizzle with oil, add a pinch of salt and a crank or pepper and toss to combine. Roast until knife tender, at least 20 minutes then set aside to cool. 
  • Make The Tahini Maple Dressing: Meanwhile, soak the sliced shallots in ice water for 5 minutes and then drain the water. Make the dressing by combining the tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, maple syrup, and 1/3 cup hot water in a blender and process until smooth (the mixture should be as thin as melted ice cream). Stir in salt and pepper; taste and adjust seasoning as desired.
  • Serve The Salad: Arrange the greens, squash, shallots, pomegranate, and pepitas on a serving plate and pass the dressing on the side.
