Roasted Pumpkin Salad

I’m a salad lover. And particularly a saucy salad. Love the tangy taste of the lemon on my veggies. And I always like to have the last bits of it at the end of the bowl when its full of water and sauce all mixed in. I guess you got the idea by now.

A salad can be a filling meal if you add the heavy stuff in it you know… quinoa, buckwheat… potato.. etc. And because my fridge was full of pumpkin, I had to add it to my salad bowl. Most of my recipes are created after looking in my fridge! That’s how I get inspired! haha
