Arugula Salad w/ Delicata Squash, Manchego Cheese, Pomegranate Seeds, and Hazelnut Vinaigrette

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

Manchego cheese

pomegranate seeds
