Roasted Squash, Arugula, Hemp Hearts Salad

Roasted Acorn Squash, Arugula, Hemp Hearts Salad


Hemp hearts is a treasure, a fairly pricey treasure, which I indulge in small doses as a special treat. A jar of shelled hemp seeds usually waits in the fridge patiently until called to enhance salads, oatmeal, yogurt and anything else that could use a boost from this nutrient-rich garnish.

Roast squash is a quick addition to winter salads. When cut into thin slices and tossed with olive oil winter squashes like acorn squash roast up in no time at all - say, 10 to 15 minutes in a 400 ° F oven.

Hearty arugula forms the base layer for this salad, topped with roast acorn squash, caramelized red onions, feta, and hemp hearts. Raspberry+balsamic vinaigrette with a touch of agave nectar is what I prefer to drizzle on this salad, sparingly.
