Autumn Brussels & Cranberry Bulgur Salad



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cut off the top of the acorn squash or small pumpkin, about 1/3 of the way down. Scoop out inside flesh to make a hallow vessel.
  3. Lightly brush the inside of the acorn squash or pumpkin with extra virgin olive oil until well coated.
  4. Place in oven and bake for about 12-15 minutes, or until inside flesh is soft to the touch.
  5. Remove from heat, let cool.
  6. For the salad, cover bulgur with boiling water and let stand until soft, about 30 minutes.  Pour off any excess water.
  7. Rinse and trim Brussels sprouts.  Cut in half lengthwise then slice crosswise into thin strips.
  8. In a large bowl combine bulgur, Brussels sprouts, cranberries and pumpkin seeds.
  9. In a small bowl, combine orange juice, oil, apple cider vinegar, salt and pepper.  Mix until well combined.  Pour dressing over salad and toss to coat.
  10. With a small pair of tongs, fill each acorn squash or pumpkin “bowl” with salad. Top with crumbled bacon pieces before serving.
