Arugula Salad with Bacon and Butternut Squash

Recipe by  

"This is just a quick salad I came up with from leftovers and loved! I liked the way the arugula paired with the bacon and squash. Add a baguette or a bagel, and it's a great lunch all on it's own! Dress with balsamic vinaigrette or simply oil and vinegar. Feta cheese can be used for the goat cheese, if you prefer."

Directions

  1. Cook bacon in a skillet over medium-high heat until some of the fat renders into the pan, 2 to 3 minutes. Add mushrooms; cook and stir together until the mushrooms are tender, about 5 minutes. Stir squash cubes into the bacon mixture; continue cooking until the squash is hot and the bacon crisp, 3 to 5 minutes more.
  2. Put arugula in a bowl; top with bacon, mushroom, and squash mixture. Sprinkle goat cheese over the salad and top with pine nuts. Sprinkle with cracked black pepper.

I've made this several times - it always gets rave reviews. I didn't use mushrooms or pine nuts because I don't like them, and I've used spinach in place of or combined with the arugula. I've taken it to pot luck type dinners and it's very easy to assemble on site. I can even cook the butternut squash and bacon a couple days before, then zap it in the microwave and top the greens as directed when you're ready to serve.
