Give January a warm welcome with oven-roasted quarters of seasonal squash from El Poquito Mexican Cantina & Tequila Bar. Paper-thin apple slices, queso fresco and fresh basil play well together in this bowl of winter whimsy. A slight touch of heat from a drizzle of habañero-infused cider vinaigrette makes it a perfect dish to share when the temperature plummets. $8.
