Yummy in my tummy! This salad was a hit with the whole family ! I loved the flavors that seasoned the squash against the sweetness and tartness of the the dried cranberries. So good! Is anybody else annoyed by the fact that the photo doesn't match the recipe? The photo has avocado and pomegranate in the salad. Annoying?Read More

Delicious when following the recipe exactly. Its also good with spinach instead of arugula, and with butternut squash with seasonings doubled. I especially like how you can make the squash and dressing ahead of time. To make the squash easier to cube, put the whole thing in the microwave for a minute or two before cutting.
This recipe was outstanding! This is what AllRecipies is all about - getting new ideas and making things you never would have made otherwise. I will make this again and again trying different things to mix it up. I forgot to add the orange zest, but didn't feel it was lacking any flavor. I will try it with it next time though! I used left over acorn squash, but then mixed in the seasoning. I also added some seeds instead of pistachios and put left over pork chops on top. This tasted like it was from a 5 star restaurant and that hint of Indian spice was so great.
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.
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 flavors combined really nicely. The only real difference I made was use feta instead of goat cheese. I know it has a different taste, but it still worked really well in the salad.
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.
This salad is restaurant quality. It is absolutely fabulous. I made Chef John’s sherry braised short ribs with rustic mashed potatoes and wanted something light and fresh using a good squash. Holy cow, this salad hit it out of the park and scored a grand slam! If you’re cooking a meal that is on the heavier side, this salad compliments absolutely perfectly! Don’t scrimp on the seasonings…spend the money for the Garam Masala….it is so bleeping worth it!!!! Great job!! I will use this for holidays and pass it to friends. (I’m looking forward to eating it after my workout tomorrow morning!!! ??)
Great recipe, and I'll regularly make the dressing and serve it with chopped bosc pear, caramelized pecans, and "power greens" (a mix of tender baby spinach, baby red and green chards, and baby kale). YUM. I might even like this better than the original.
I made the squash. The mixture of cumin and cinnamon was delicious!
This was delicious and different, since you don't usually see squash in salad! I lean vegan so I left off the cheese. I also cut the amount of oil to 2TBSP of olive oil to roast the squash and then a tsp per salad. Leaving off the cheese and some of the oil cuts the calories by more than 50 percent. I will definitely make this again!
Dressing was good, but I'd skip the squash mix was not great. Will definitely make the salad again minus the squash (used butternut squash instead of acorn). Did not have apple cider vinegar, used red wine vinegar instead.
A really great sauce ! Quite versatile too. I replaced goat cheese with a poached egg and a slice of French baguette bread per person and it was still perfect.
The dressing alone makes this a 5 star recipe!! Loved the entire salad but the dressing is unbelievably yummy. I finally have a reason to use my garam masala.
Dressing is great. Squash is a lot of work to cut and peel and not super excited about taste for all that work. I used pomegranates instead of dried cranberries. Dinner group loved it.
LOVED IT! I'm not a big fan of acorn squash but I had one that I needed to use. Searched for a recipe & so happy I found this one. I would cut the squash into 1/2 inch cubes instead of 1 inch. It took longer to cook than the recipe stated and was too large for the salad in 1 inch cubes. I added roasted beets since I had some & switched feta for the goat cheese. The dressing was THE BEST.
This salad is amazing! I added boiled chicken the second time I tried it, and it'
Excellent!! A great recipe that is easy, uses great ingredients and tastes amazing.
We made this as a side to accompany a spicy chicken dish. The spices of the recipe were both flavorful and the dressing was a bit sweet - a lovely complement. This will be a new favorite salad and is a great way to enjoy winter squash.
One word: FANTASTIC!!! I used acorn squash I grew in my garden and it was delicious! Will totally make it again!
Awesome dressing! I omitted the salt and oil to follow my diet
This was a combination of things that I love - goat cheese, squash, pistachios, arugula - and it was STILL better than I'd expected. Super filling, too. A really good dinner-salad.
What a wonderful salad for early fall! So filling and satisfying. This can easily be a main coarse. The salad is a perfect balance of heady spices with the tang of pomegranate and the richness of the squash and feta. The pistachios added interesting texture. I will definitely be making this again!
This is a great salad! I'm not a salad person let alone a 'busy' salad person but this was actually satisfying. Due to lack of ingredients I had to omit a few things such as the dijon mustard and cranberries. I had romaine lettuce and feta cheese so I swapped the arugula and goat cheese and added walnuts in place of the pistachios. it was still delicious even with the alternative ingredients.
Used only half of the prepared dressing and it was wonderful. So many layers of flavor in this dish.
Loved this salad - well, mostly, I loved the dressing! I didn't have pistachios or cranberries - but the arugula with the cheese and the dressing was amazing
Didn't have arugula, pistachios, or onion powder, so I improvised and used fresh spinach and romaine, and chopped pecans. I subbed 1/4 t garlic powder for the onion. I wasn't sure how to go about peeling the squash, so I just sliced it along its ridges and baked the slices, then sliced the skins off after it was cooked and cooled. I also just used plain feta for the cheese. It turned out fabulously, a surprisingly filling dish that everyone enjoyed!
