Fall Pumpkin Salad

 

Fall Pumpkin Salad

This Fall pumpkin salad is really simple and easy to make for a quick lunch or side to your dinner. I actually made it with roasted butternut squash, which I hear in New Zealand and Australia is also called a “pumpkin.” To save time, check if your grocery store carries chopped butternut squash that is ready to go. I am lucky that my Trader Joe’s carries it already chopped! If not, you can’t beat freshly chopped butternut squash. Just season with salt, pepper and fresh or dried sage and roast in the oven for 15 minutes at 425 degrees F. In the meantime, you can blend up the balsamic honey dressing and toss it with the spinach, pumpkin seeds and chopped pecans for your Fall pumpkin salad.
