Season and toss squash


Place the butternut squash on a baking sheet. Drizzle it with maple syrup and olive oil. Sprinkle it with kosher salt, and black pepper. Toss it.

Place the arugula or salad greens in a large bowl. Pour over enough dressing to coat and give it a big toss. Add the roasted butternut squash mixture.
