  1. Position a rack into the center position of the oven and preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet or jelly roll pan with parchment paper.
  2. Spread acorn squash cubes onto prepared baking sheet and toss with 2 tablespoons olive oil. Mix cinnamon, onion powder, cumin, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper in a small bowl; sprinkle spice mixture over squash cubes.
  3. Bake on the center rack of preheated oven until squash are tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.
  4. Whisk apple cider vinegar, maple syrup, Dijon mustard, orange zest, garam masala, garlic, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper in a bowl until thoroughly combined; slowly drizzle olive oil into vinegar mixture, whisking constantly, until olive oil incorporates into the dressing. Refrigerate while completing remaining steps.
  5. Toss cooked acorn squash cubes, baby arugula, cranberries, pistachios, and goat cheese in a salad bowl; drizzle with dressing and serve.

The acorn squash was a pain to peel and cut (I've read maybe you don't have to peel it--will try that next time), but this recipe was fantastic. The dressing alone was super good, but the flavor...

Fantastic! I love the dressing. I added some poached chicken breast to make it a full dinner. Used a sharp white cheddar instead of goat cheese. Super easy & great flavor.

Wonderful salad! I used Romaine not Arugula and my family and friends couldn't get enough of it. I will make over and over again.
