Roasted squash and arugula salad

FODMAP Salad - roasted squash & arugula salad

I’m that person who always shows up to Thanksgiving with some sort of healthy salad to offer even if I’m one of the few that eat it.  Last year I made this delicious fall harvest salad that was a hit and to be honest I didn’t really care if it wasn’t because I knew the leftovers would be just as good!  I wanted to come up with another FODMAP salad recipe that would win a non-salad crowd over and I think this is IT!  The peppery taste of the arugula with the sweetness of the squash plus the crunch of the pumpkin seeds and pomegranate takes this salad to the next level.

Also, who else is in complete shock that Thanksgiving is NEXT WEEK?!!?  I did a complete post on “How to survive Thanksgiving while on the FODMAP diet” that you can check out now.  I would love to hear what you’re planning on cooking up. 😉
