The only cooking required for this beautiful, easy salad recipe is to roast the butternut squash in the oven. The rest of the dish is incredibly quick, as you can use a container of mixed salad greens and store-bought red wine vinaigrette dressing. Feel free to make your own salad dressing, or use feta cheese instead of goat cheese, or experiment with your favorite kinds of squash for this versatile recipe.
