Expand your roasted squash recipes with this easy salad. Or start auditioning squash recipes for your upcoming holiday menus. The recipe uses delicata and acorn squash, which are available at the Lenexa Farmers Market. With both squash varieties, you can eat the skin to get the full nutritional value from the veggie. 

Delicata squash has a thinner skin, while acorn squash skin has a little more bite that gives the recipe a great texture. Adjust the recipe if you prefer one squash over the other. It will be delicious either way.
