A summer classic leans into fall with roasted butternut squash, tart-sweet dried cranberries, and fresh rosemary. Find peeled, diced fresh butternut squash in the produce section. You can sub crumbled goat cheese or feta for the blue cheese and walnuts or pecans for the hazelnuts.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 425°F.

Step 2

Arrange butternut squash in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet; coat with cooking spray. Sprinkle evenly with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Bake at 425°F for 15 minutes or until browned, stirring once halfway through cooking.

Step 3

Heat a medium skillet over medium-high. Coat pan with cooking spray. Sprinkle steak with 1/4 teaspoon salt and remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add steak to pan; cook 4 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Place steak on a cutting board; let stand 10 minutes. Cut steak across the grain into thin slices.

Step 4

Combine remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, olive oil, vinegar, and rosemary in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Arrange spinach on a platter; top with butternut squash, cranberries, and steak. Sprinkle with hazelnuts and shallot. Drizzle vinegar mixture over top. Sprinkle with cheese.

Best Salad Ever!

Didn't know what to make for dinner and this popped up in my email.  This is definitely going to become one of our regular meals.  The only change I would make is use balsamic vinegar in place of the white wine vinegar.

My Favorite Salad

I'm not much of a salad eater but this was great.  I used 1 1/2 pounds of steak instead of one and walnuts and pecans instead of hazlenuts because I couldn't find hazelenuts.
