Fall Salad with Delicata Squash, Apples and Muesli

Are you looking for a fall squash salad? Around Thanksgiving, it’s easy to find pumpkins everywhere you look – but have you tried delicata squash?

What is delicata squash?

Delicata squash is native to North America and gets its name from its delicate skin, which is edible along with the rest of the squash. It’s rich in vitamins A and C.

Cooking delicata squash is easy, particularly if you cut it into rings using its natural grooves as a guide. Once it’s cut, roast it with oil, salt and pepper in a 450°F oven or cook it in a frying pan.

Here’s how you can add it to a salad that’s perfect for fall, topped with our organic muesli Müska Natural.
