Crispy Butternut Squash Spinach Salad with Bacon-Shallot Vinaigrette

1 small butternut squash, peeled, seeded and cubed or cut into half moons
1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
kosher salt
Freshly ground balck pepper
1 shallot, minced
¼ c red wine vinegar
1 Tbsp. brown sugar
5 oz. baby spinach (about 6 cups)
½ c pecans, toasted and chopped


Preheat oven to 425° and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.

Arrange butternut squash on the baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast until golden brown and crisp, 20 -25 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a large skillet, fry bacon over medium heat until crisp, turning occasionally, about 6 minutes total. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate and transfer bacon grease to a small bowel.

In same skillet, cook shallot over medium-high heat until tender, 4 minutes. Stir in red wine vinegar and brown sugar and mix well. Whisk in 2 Tbsp. bacon grease and season with salt and pepper.

Place spinach in a large bowel. Add pecans and roasted butternut squash and pour over warm vinaigrette, tossing gently to combine.

Serve immediately.
