Maple Dijon Acorn Squash and Kale Salad

Is there anything better than a hearty winter salad? Use butternut or acorn squash from your box to make this fragrant and filling meal. It’s great as a vegetarian-friendly main dish (boost the protein with a hard-boiled egg or extra nuts) or as a colorful side salad with roasted chicken. Consider it the perfect weeknight meal when you’re trying to get more veggies into your diet, or you just need to finish up some lingering produce.

I was referred by Nancy Filley but when I made my order tonight, I didn’t add her name to my order.
Could you please add her name to my order so she will get credit for the referral.

Thank you.
