Roasted Squash and Gingerbread Panzanella

An all-time favorite at Blackberry Farm, this salad is a staple on the menu throughout the fall. The gingerbread is sweetened with sorghum syrup, made from a grain native to Tennessee. If unavailable, molasses makes a fine substitute. You will not use all of the gingerbread for this recipe. Leftovers are delicious as a snack or dessert, topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of creme fraiche.

Lovely salad. I will definitely make this again because it is so unique.
This recipe DOES REQUIRE a couple independent processes -- baking gingerbread, toasting croutons from the gingerbread, and roasting squash. I made most of the components a day ahead, then let the salad components come to room temp before I tossed them together and added the wet ingredients.
This salad tastes fabulous on Day 2 with chunks of leftover turkey. I have also made the recipe with spinach instead of arugula, but my favorite is half spinach and half arugula.
Pecans and pomegranate seeds sprinkled on top make it even more attractive while adding a nice crunch.
Pros: Healthy, Impressive, Will Make Again, unique
Cons: Complicated, time consuming

This was a great substitute for the typical stuffing. The steps can be done ahead and assembled when needed. The gingerbread receipe make a lot of bread and only a fraction is used for this recipe. Can make it and serve as dessert or freeze for later.
Pros: Impressive, Will Make Again
