Delight your guests with this beautiful, seasonal dish bursting with beta-carotene and vitamin C. Serving tip: For easier eating, remove the squash rind with a paring knife just before serving.

  1. Preheat oven to 450°. In a small jar, whisk together orange juice, vinegar, olive oil, and cardamom. Set aside. Shake just before using.
  2. Lay squash wedges on a rimmed baking sheet. Spray with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Turn wedges over and repeat. Roast for 15 minutes; turn slices and roast 15 minutes more, until browned and tender.
