PROCESS

3 lbs butternut squash, halved lengthwise, tough skin peeled and ends trimmed and discarded, seeded, and cut into 1 inch pieces

Add the reserved squash and the radicchio to the bowl and use your hands to combine everything gently (messy, but fun). Transfer the salad to a serving platter and serve immediately (or within a few hours; it holds well at room temperature).
