This salad always feels like a party to me. It's festive, pretty, and delicious. The pomegranate seeds add a pop of color, and bring a burst of freshness and astringency that pairs really well with the Manchego cheese and the hazelnut vinaigrette. The delicata squash, which has a thin skin you can eat, brings a little sweetness, and the arugula a little pepperiness.
1 generous handful of arugula per person
1-2 delicata squash depending on the size. You want six-eight slices per person.
3 Tablespoons hazelnut oil
1 Tablespoon champagne vinegar
