Roasted pumpkin salad with honey dressing

Pumpkin is extremely nutritious and healthy, thus I often cook with it. A cup of cooked, mashed pumpkin contains vitamin A, is an often-overlooked source of fiber and And the plant sterols in pumpkin seeds have also been linked to fighting off certain cancers.

I’ve already published a pumpkin coconut soup recipe, delicious pumpkin juice and baked crispy pumpkin recipes so now it’s time for a roasted pumpkin salad with sweet honey dressing.
