Instructions

img_0004Preheat oven to 400F/200C.

Prepare the Brussels sprouts by cutting the stem end and removing any yellowing/browning outer leaves.

If the Brussels sprouts are big, cut a cross on the stem to allow faster cooking.

img_0014In a large bowl, mix the butternut squash, bell pepper, Brussels sprouts, dried oregano, salt and pepper and olive oil until the veggies are evenly coated.
img_0016Pour the vegetables onto a baking sheet (lined with parchment paper, optional) in one even layer.
img_0043Roast in a 400F preheated oven for 40 minutes.
img_0042To make the dressing, place avocado, garlic, lime juice, olive oil, salt and pepper in a blender or food processor.
img_0044Blend until the mixture is light and creamy.
img_0048To assemble the salad, place a handful of mixed greens on a plate and top with the roasted veggies.

Spoon the Avocado Dressing over the salad and serve.
