The spiciness of the pepper flakes perfectly balances the sweetness of the squash in this wilted kale & delicata squash salad.
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil, divided
  • 2 cups kale
  • 1 delicata squash
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp salt, to taste
  • ¼ tsp black pepper, to taste
  • ½ tsp red chili flakes
  1. Cut the delicata squash in half and scoop out the seeds.
  2. Place the squash halves on a baking sheet and brush with roughly 1 tsp olive oil and season lightly with salt and pepper.
  3. Bake the squash at 400 degrees for 45 minutes - 1hour until the squash is fork-tender.
  4. Let the squash cool for 10 minutes (or let it cool completely and refrigerate it to be used later).
  5. Cut each squash half into ½-inch slices.
  6. Place the kale in a large pan and add the seasonings, cooking the kale over medium-high heat.
  7. As the kale begins to wilt, add the remaining olive oil and the squash slices, continuing to season with salt and pepper to taste.
  8. Serve the wilted kale and squash immediately.
