This salad recipe is simply delectable. With its big orangey pumpkin chunks that have been infused with the nutty and peppery flavors of the toasted cumin seeds. Then like a match made in heaven it is joined with crumbles of creamy feta. What is the crunch you ask? Well it’s a simple everyday ingredient and without it the texture of the dish would have a mushy mouth feel. The answer: crunchy raw carrot, sliced up into little half moon pieces.

These three ingredients are placed into a bed of mixed lettuce leaves and tossed gently with a sweet balsamic dressing. The sharpness of the dressing adds a depth of flavor to this simple salad. This salad can be eaten with the pumpkin hot or cold, it’s up to you. Once dressed eat immediately to avoid soggy lettuce.
Enjoy.
