  1. Cut squash in to 1/4" thick wedges. Blend spices together and toss with squash and olive oil in a 9 x 13 pan. Cover and let refrigerate for at least one hour or up to overnight.
  2. When ready, preheat oven to 375˚.
  3. Bake squash until tender and beginning to brown, 20-25 minutes. Remove and let cool slightly.

Tips & Tricks: Add a bit of texture to your salad: fry the chickpeas in a couple teaspoons of olive oil until they are golden and begin to pop. Sprinkle with a bit of salt and pepper before tossing in the salad.
