Ingredients

  • 1 acorn squash (about 1-1/3 lb/670 g)
  • 1 Cortland apple
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper
Cider Mustard Dressing:
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pinch salt

Cut squash in half; scrape out seeds. Cut each half into 6 wedges. Cut apple crosswise into four 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick rings; remove core with teaspoon. Set aside.

In large bowl, stir together butter, maple syrup, salt and pepper; add squash and toss to coat. Place on foil-lined rimmed baking sheet; roast in 425°F (220°C) oven until slightly tender, about 10 minutes. Add apple; roast, turning once, until squash is fork-tender and golden brown, about 10 minutes.

Cider Mustard Dressing: Meanwhile, in large bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, mustard, maple syrup, pepper and salt ; add lettuce and toss to coat. Divide among 4 plates; top each with 3 wedges of squash and 1 slice of apple. Sprinkle with sunflower seeds.
