Directions for Salad

-Preheat oven to 450.

-Trim Brussels sprouts and cut in half lengthwise. Combine Brussels sprouts in a large bowl with butternut squash, salt, pepper, and olive oil. Stir to coat the vegetables evenly. Spread on 1-2 baking sheets in a single layer. Do not crowd or they will not brown properly.

Getting the sprouts ready!

-Roast for 20-30 minutes until nicely browned. Halfway through, use a spatula to turn the vegetables over. If using two pans, swap the one on the upper rack with the bottom.

– Transfer to a bowl and allow to cool down until they are just warm. Add the green onions and parsley and toss.  Add dressing to taste. Toss to coat.

-Can be served warm or at room temperature.
