This is a great fall salad to try.  It’s loaded with both colour and flavour.

Serves 4

2 cups butternut squash peeled, seeded, and cut into 1/2 inch cubes
2 cups beets, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch cubes
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
Salt and pepper

1 small shallot (about 2 tablespoons), diced
1/2 cup farro pearled, rinsed
1 cup water
3 cups salad greens
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds, toasted
1/4 cup feta cheese

1/4 lemon juice
1/2 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon honey

Preheat oven to 450° F.  Line a cookie sheet with foil.

Add butternut squash to a bowl and toss with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.  Place squash on one side of cookie sheet. Add beets to the bowl and toss with 1 tablespoon olive oil.  Season with salt and pepper and place on the other side of the cookie sheet. Roast in the oven until tender, about 30 minutes.

In a medium saucepan, over medium-high heat add 1 tablespoon olive oil. Sauté 1 small shallot with a wooden spoon until soft and fragrant, about 3 minutes.  Add 1/2 cup farro and sauté for 3 more minutes stirring often. Add 1 cup water, turn up heat and bring to a boil.  Lower heat, bring to a simmer. Cover and cook for about 25 minutes or until al dente.  Drain and set aside. 

Whisk together lemon juice, olive oil and honey in a small bowl.  

In a salad bowl toss salad greens with enough dressing to coat.  Place squash and beets on top.  Sprinkle with feta, cranberries, farro and pumpkin seeds.
