As the cooler weather is approaching us here in Sydney, it's nice to get into more hearty salads. And I think this Roasted pumpkin and spinach salad hits the mark.
I have made it a few times before but today will be a bit different.
I am making a variation of this salad for our ladies church group lunch that we are having at my friend's house down the road today. And instead of using the Baby Spinach (which I LOVE) I will be using my own produce! YAY!
This is a small sample of the lettuce we have been growing in our veggie garden the past month and I'm so excited as it's been growing like crazy lately with more than I know what to do with. So into the salad bowl it will go, along with a few shallots thrown in for good measure too :)
I will have to take a pic of our veggie garden to show you sometime soon; as it is Glen's baby with a Fort Knox-like security system to keep the little furry intruders out.
So back to my salad...
I'll be using our home-grown lettuce, pumpkin I roasted last night, pine nuts I toasted last night and I thought I would sprinkle some feta on top too. And below is the dressing recipe.
Honey and balsamic dressing
- 1/4 cup honey
- 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
And I hope that you have a lovely day too!!!
