Colorful, crunchy, and seasonal, that's our strategy for making a winter salad. Crisp radicchio and escarole are teamed with roasted acorn squash and shiitake mushrooms and combined with crunchy pepitas and pomegranate arils. There's a lively dressing with apple-cider vinegar and olive oil and a sprinkle of feta tops it all off.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees with racks in upper and lower thirds. Halve squash; remove stem and seeds. Cut into 1-inch pieces. Arrange on a rimmed baking sheet, drizzle with 2 tablespoons oil, and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Arrange mushrooms on another rimmed baking sheet, drizzle with 2 tablespoons oil, and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Roast, flipping each once, until squash is caramelized and tender, 25 to 30 minutes; and mushrooms are golden and crisp, 30 to 35 minutes. Let cool completely.
