Roasted butternut squash and goat cheese salad

Thanks to one of my 43Things friends for this idea...

1 butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and cut into chunks
1/2 large red onion, sliced
8 oz (225 g) goat cheese
salad greens
1/2 cup toasted pumpkin seeds or pine nuts (be careful with pine nuts; they burn quickly, and are hot to handle)

for dressing:
2 tsp honey
2 tsp Dijon mustard
3 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
3 Tbsp olive oil
fresh ground black pepper to taste

Roast squash chunks with onions for 20 min at 220 C/400oF. After 20 min, slice up goat cheese and add to the squash, baking for another 10 min.

For dressing: with a fork, combine honey, mustard, and vinegar until honey is dissolved; beat in olive oil until mixture is emulsified.

Serve squash on a bed of greens, drizzle with dressing, and sprinkle with pine nuts or pumpkin seeds.
