=== 🍽🍸🥩 RECIPE ===
2 pounds (900g) butternut squash, peeled, seeded and cut into 1-inch (2.5cm) pieces
1 red onion, sliced
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons ground cumin
5 ounces (140g) arugula (rocket)
3/4 cup (85g) pecan, toasted and chopped
1/3 cup (50g) pitted kalamata olives, chopped
2 tablespoons fresh mint, chopped

To roast the squash:
Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C).
In a bowl, toss the squash, onion, olive oil, cumin, salt & pepper together. Spread out on a sheet pan, and roast until the squash and onion are soft and browned, about 35 to 45 minutes. Remove from the oven, and let cool for 15 minutes.
For the dressing:
In a bowl, whisk the tahini, water, mayonnaise, lemon juice, garlic, salt & pepper together until creamy and thoroughly combined.
Reserve 1/4 cup (60ml) of the dressing.
