Roasted Butternut Salad with Apples and Thyme Vinaigrette

Besides soup, my favorite way to eat butternut squash is roasted.  I like it in salads especially.  It goes well with roasted apples and thyme.  My house smelled so good as I was making this roasted butternut salad! All of the flavors of fall in one yummy salad.

I made this vegan, but if you want to go the extra mile with this salad, a little sprinkling of a flavorful cheese wouldn’t be a bad way to go. I’m thinking a good blue cheese, like Stilton, would be great, as would a few shavings of Parmigiano Reggiano or Pecorino Romano. Oh! Or a really sharp white cheddar. That would be good too. If you wanted to, you could also add a sprinkling of cooked, crumbled bacon. I think this is a salad with loads of compromise, no? In any case this roasted butternut salad is sure to hit the spot if you’re looking for a filling, savory main or side dish salad.
