Roasted Squash with Hot Pepper Vinaigrette
If you love spicy-heat, squash is an excellent pairing with hot peppers, and all things hot!
Preheat oven to 425°. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
Halve one acorn, or other small winter squash, discard seeds, and then cut into wedges. Toss with 2 tsp. olive oil, season with salt and pepper. Lay wedges on prepared baking sheet and roast for about 20-30 minutes, or until they are tender and browned. Turn once during roasting time.
Meanwhile, whisk together the vinaigrette:
2 Tbsp. olive oil
¼-½ small clove garlic, minced or pressed
2 tsp. lime juice
1 tsp. finely minced hot pepper (or to your taste)
1 Tbsp. finely minced parsley or cilantro -optionail
Salt and pepper to taste
Place squash on platter or plates, and drizzle with the vinaigrette.
