Turn squash and apple slices halfway through using a spatula, and lightly brush with the remainder of the coconut oil mixture. When the squash and apples are done, remove the sheet pan from the oven and let cool.

  5. In a small bowl, add the olive oil, water, apple cider vinegar, Dijon mustard, minced garlic, and salt, and whisk together until the dressing is emulsified.

  6. In a large bowl or platter, add the romaine lettuce and cooked sorghum. Top with the roasted squash and apple mixture from above, along with pecans and hemp seeds. Drizzle with the apple cider vinaigrette.
