We had the most delicious Danish “salad” on rich nut bread the other day.

Here’s the closest recipe in our collection that was similar. But instead of bread, it is on top of some baked squash. Enjoy!

Roast Beef on Squash Salad

Makes 2 Servings


  • 12oz Slices of Roast Beef
  • 1 Acorn Squash, about 2 lbs
  • 1 Red Pepper, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp Curry Powder
  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil

  • 2 Handfuls baby Spinach

  1. Cook Roast Beef separately. Or purchase slices of roast beef from the cold meats section 😀

2.Preheat the oven to 450 F.

  1. Cut the squash in half. Rub it with half the oil and the

salt and pepper, and place on a baking sheet. Roast it in

the oven until the flesh is soft and brown, about 25 minutes.

  1. While the squash roasts, heat the remaining oil in a

large non-stick pan over medium-high heat.

Sauté bell pepper, and onion for 3 minutes, then

add the curry powder, with a splash of water and raisins. Simmer over low

heat for 10 minutes.

  1. Carve the inside of the squash and put a bed of baby

spinach in it

  1. Serve a scoop of the curry mix inside the roasted squash. Garnish

with the cilantro and pickled red onion.
