Lovely Delicata squash headline in this salad that’s layer upon layer of flavor and texture. We put our Sweet Pecan Rub to the test here, moving from its workhorse job on grilled protein to this sophisticated squash salad. A quick vinaigrette with Rosemary Extra Virgin Olive Oil and White Balsamic Vinegar pull it all together. The result? Divine.

Roast until bread is lightly toasted and feta is soft and warmed through, 8–10 min.
