I love this salad and would eat it as least once a week. I grab a pumpkin when I grocery shop, roast it up and store it in the fridge. This salad can be used as a side dish or can be transformed into a delicious main with the addition of some more protein. Or enjoy a double serving as a carb-up option.

It’s particularly good with lamb, in my opinion. Enjoy!
