1 bunch parsley


  1. Heat oven to 350F

  5. Meanwhile combine the vinegar, orange zest, juice, olive oil, and a big pinch of salt
  6. Dress the cooked beans and let the beans cool to room temperature in the dressing
  7. Cut the cabbage thinly and dress with the marinated beans
  8. Add the chopped parsley to the cabbage salad
  9. Remove the squash from the oven and transfer to a serving platter
  10. Top the squash with the cabbage-bean salad and serve
