Three Sisters Salad brings together the bounty of the summer garden and a combination of flavors that are fabulous.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds butternut squash
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 (15.5-oz.) can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 cups fresh corn kernels
  • 1/2 small red onion, sliced
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
  • Balsamic Vinaigrette
  • 3 cups loosely packed arugula

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Peel and seed butternut squash; cut into 3/4-inch cubes. Toss squash with olive oil to coat; place in a single layer in a lightly greased aluminum foil-lined 15- x 10-inch jelly-roll pan. Bake 20 minutes or until squash is just tender and begins to brown (do not overcook), stirring once after 10 minutes. Cool completely (about 20 minutes).

  2. Toss together cannellini beans, next 4 ingredients, and squash in a large bowl; cover and chill 2 to 4 hours. Toss with arugula just before serving.
