  • 1 1.5 lb. butternut squash, halved lengthwise and seeds removed
  • 4 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil divided, plus more for coating baking sheet
  • 1 small head radicchio finely chopped
  • 1 head kale finely chopped
  • 1 cup sliced button mushrooms
  • 2 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp. honey
  • 1 Tbsp. shallots thinly sliced
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Lightly oil a rimmed 13x9-inch baking sheet with olive oil.
  2. Use vegetable peeler to peel squash into long thin ribbons into a large bowl. Toss squash with 2 Tbsp. olive oil and a pinch of both sea salt and pepper.
  3. Transfer squash ribbons in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes or until tender then turn on your broiler and broil for 1 minute until the ribbons are lightly browned.
  4. Remove from the oven and transfer to a large bowl with radicchio, kale and mushrooms.
  5. In a small bowl, whisk vinegar, remaining 2 Tbsp. olive oil, Dijon mustard, honey, shallots, sea salt and pepper. Season to taste for this dressing because some apple cider vinegars and Dijon's can be overpowering so use a small amount at first then drizzle over kale mixture and serve.
