Directions:
Preheat oven to 425º F.

Chop the peeled and seeded butternut squash into 1-inch cubes. Place squash and red onion onto a large sheet pan. Drizzle with a few tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil; salt and pepper to taste. Toss squash and onions to coat evenly with oil. Roast for 30 minutes, or until the squash is lightly caramelized and tender.

Over a low flame, toast walnuts in a dry non-stick pan for about 3-5 minutes. Keep the nuts moving in the pan so as not to burn them!

In a large bowl, toss together the fresh spinach, roasted vegetables, toasted walnuts and dried cranberries. Add salt and pepper to taste. Continue to toss until the spinach has wilted. Serve immediately.
