Number of Servings: 4


    1/4 cup blue cheese crumbles
    3 tablespoons lemon juice
    Salt and ground black pepper to taste
    1 1/2 teaspoons 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 cup chickpeas (garbanzo beans)


Use a fork to mash together blue cheese and lemon juice in a large bowl to make a thick smooth dressing. Season with salt and pepper; set aside. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions, 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, salt and pepper and toss to combine.

Yields four 1 cup servings.
