Instructions
  1. Halve squash lengthwise; remove seeds. Cut crosswise into ½-inch (1 cm) slices; toss with oil, salt and pepper. Spread out on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet; roast in a preheated 400°F (200°C) oven, turning once, until tender and golden brown around edges, 30 to 35 minutes.
  2. Toasted Honey Oats: In a bowl, combine oats, honey, oil, ginger and salt; spread on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Bake in a preheated 350°F (180°C) oven, stirring once, until golden and crisp, about 8 minutes.
  3. Pear Vinaigrette: In a blender, combine oil, pears, shallots, vinegar, honey, salt and pepper until smooth.
  4. In a large bowl, toss arugula and kale with enough dressing to coat. Mound on plates; top with squash slices and blue cheese. Sprinkle with Toasted Honey Oats. Sprinkle with pumpkin seeds, if using.
