Gather your ingredients.
ROAST BUTTERNUT SQUASH
Pour the honey in a large mixing bowl.
Add the cinnamon. Mix the cinnamon into the honey.
Add the diced butternut squash.
Add the chopped pecans. Mix well to coat the squash and nuts in honey and cinnamon.
Line a baking dish with parchment. I used a 13" x 9" casserole dish but a baking sheet or similar dish will work fine.
Spread the squash mixture out in the baking dish.
Bake for about 60 minutes, or until squash is tender.
ASSEMBLE THE SALAD
Pour the olive oil into a large mixing bowl.
Add the juice of 1 lemon.
Add the roasted squash.
Add the crumbled feta.
Season as needed with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Toss with mixed greens.
