Delicata Squash and Kale (serves 2 as a side dish)Ingredients:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut squash into 1/2 inch thick semicircles. Toss with 1/2 tsp olive oil and spread onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake until just tender, about 15-18 minutes.
Mix together the balsamic vinegar & honey in a small bowl. Brush some of the mixture onto the squash slices; reserve remaining mixture. Bake an additional 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, place kale in a large bowl. Heat remaining tablespoon of oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add shallot (or red onion) and garlic, and cook until slightly softened, about 4 minutes.
Add red-wine vinegar and remaining vinegar-honey mixture to saucepan, and bring to a boil.
Immediately pour the hot dressing over kale, and sprinkle with salt & season with pepper. Add squash.
Cover with plastic wrap, and let stand for 5 minutes. Toss until kale wilts slightly. Serve warm or at room temperature.
