  • 1 tsp grainy mustard
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1.5 tsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp shallot, finely minced
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • salt and black pepper

Squash Marinade

  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and black pepper
  • 1 delicata squash, cut in half with seeds removed
  • 1 bunch lacinato kale or collard greens, stems removed
  • 1/2 apple, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 red onion, thinly sliced


Preheat the oven to 425. Slice squash into thin half-moons and toss with the smoked paprika, olive oil, and a generous sprinkle of salt.

Spread onto a sheet pan, making sure it is not overcrowded, and roast for 15 -25 minutes, flipping the squash halfway through. When the squash is browned and cooked through remove from the oven and place in a container to chill in the fridge.

Meanwhile, stack the greens, roll tightly, and slice thinly. Set aside in a large bowl, add the apple and onion. Make the dressing by mixing the mustard, apple cider vinegar, maple syrup, shallot, a generous sprinkle of salt and black pepper into a bowl, whisk to combine.

Slowly drizzle in the olive oil while whisking or shake it all together in a jar to emulsify. Add the squash to the bowl with the greens, apple, and onion, and toss with a couple large spoonfuls of the dressing, adding more as needed until it’s coated, finish with black pepper.
