Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup blue cheese crumbles
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 small red onion thinly sliced
  • 1 (5-ounce) package baby spinach
  • 4 cups cubed and roasted butternut squash warmed
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
Method

Use a fork to mash together blue cheese and lemon juice in a large bowl to make a thick smooth dressing; set aside. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Add spinach and cook, tossing often, until slightly wilted and warm, 1 to 2 minutes more. Transfer contents of skillet to bowl with dressing, add squash, and toss to combine.
