Butternut Squash Spinach Salad

I was looking for a way to add green into my Chicken dinner the other night and decided to combine my butternut squash and bag of spinach which was just waiting to expire in a tasty little salad.

Butternut Squash Spinach Salad
1 butternut squash, peeled and cubed
salt and pepper
2 bacon strips - cooked to crispy, patted dry, and crumbled
bunch of spinach
pine nuts
dried cherries
Boathouse Olive Oil Vinaigrette w/ blue cheese

Preheat oven to 400 and layout the squash on a sprayed sheet. Spray the top, salt and pepper, (or salt and cinnamon) and cook for 30 min. For salad, in large bowl mix spinach, 1 cup of the hot cubed cooked squash, cherries, pinenuts, bacon crumbles and dressing. * You can use any dressing of your choice, and if paleo keep it simple. I have been loving this boathouse variety lately, so I use it alot!
