Roasted Delicata Squash & Wild Rice Salad

Today I bring you this colorful, tasty and wholesome roasted delicata squash & wild rice salad!

A salad that is perrrrrfect for the fall and winter seasons!

This roasted delicata squash & wild rice salad is perfect for cooler weather! With cranberries, pumpkin seeds and a maple mustard dressing!

And while the calendar may say that it’s fall, it kinda sorta feels like winter lately here in North Carolina. {Although, let’s be real. While I grew up in the northeast, I’ve totally become a complete wimp after living in the south for so long.}

But baby, it sure is cold outside! The fireplace is on, slippers are an absolute necessity and cozy blankets are out in full force.

Tis the season for winter-y salads!

Especially ones that are packed with caramelized delicata squash, chewy wild rice, sweet dried cranberries, delightful pumpkin seeds and a maple mustard dressing.

Sweet, savory, crunchy!

It’s the perfect trifecta of salad goodness. And while this dish may be super simple to pull together, it also has a bit of a fancy pants vibe going on.

Which means that it can 100% hold its own at your holiday table. Power to the salad!
