We used pumpkin instead of butternut squash, don't know how much that changes things (I'm not a chef, I'm an eater). The pine nuts and feta were a good flavor/texture too.

This is a mild flavoured salad. I used very good quality ingredients but the salad didn't waw us. I used an unrefined extra virgin olive oil, sweet paprika (maybe for those who like spicy a hot paprika would work better here), baby spinach and a goats milk feta cheese along with the rest. I wouldn't make this again. Made for RECIPE SWAP #45 - October 2010.
