Preheat oven to 400f. Spray a lined baking sheet with oil and add chopped butternut squash. Cook for 30 minutes turning halfway through. Pierce with a fork to check for doneness.
Cook quinoa according to package directions while squash is cooking. (quinoa can be made ahead of time too)
In a small jar or bowl mix the dressing ingredients together - taste and adjust seasonings.
Once squash is done, scrape into large bowl. Add the cooked quinoa, onions, pumpkin seeds, dried cherries, and salt and pepper.
Drizzle dressing over the entire bowl if enjoying right away. Otherwise, store separately and add dressing before enjoying.
Can be stored in the fridge for a few days.
