Recipe: Roasted Pumpkin & Prosciutto Salad

Recipe: Roasted Pumpkin & Prosciutto Salad

Did you know that pumpkin is a fruit, not a vegetable? That’s because the edible part is from the seed-bearing structure of the plant. October is the perfect time to enjoy this recipe as the pumpkins still taste good (and you’ll find plenty of them around as Halloween approaches!). Plus, Springtime means fresh crunchy carrots and delicious sweet potatoes too.

Enjoy this highly nutritious salad either warm or cold. If you’re vegetarian, then replace the prosciutto with toasted pine nuts or crumbled walnuts. Fetta can also be a wonderful addition to this salad if you want to boost the protein content to make it into a meal.

As a side dish, this salad goes well with so many meals, such as our Traditional Lasagne, Chicken & Leek Pie, Tomato + Goats Cheese Tarts or Chicken saltimbocca w preserved lemon butter.
