Using a strong knife, carefully cut a 2” slice out of the squash.  De-seed and shave with a peeler into cold water to keep firm and make the pieces curl.

Spoon 2 dessertspoons of the vinegar from the walnut jar into a small bowl and mix with the mustard.

Arrange the leaves and the squash on the plates, sprinkle the walnut pieces over and pour over the dressing.

Season with salt and black pepper.
