- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together 3 tablespoons of the olive oil, the vinegar and 1/2 teaspoon of the salt. Set aside.
- Place the squash wedges on a rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil and 1 teaspoon salt. Add the rosemary and garlic. Cover the tray tightly with a sheet of foil. Bake until the tip of a knife goes into the squash easily, 35 to 40 minutes.
- Drizzle three-quarters of the vinaigrette over the squash and allow it to cool and absorb the dressing for about 10 minutes.
- Add the arugula, pistachios and cherries to the remaining vinaigrette. Toss gently to coat. Place the marinated squash wedges on a platter and top with the dressed greens. Sprinkle with the gorgonzola and serve.
