Warm Pumpkin and Apple Harvest Salad


Warm pumpkin and apple harvest salad

Sick of pumpkin yet? Not me!! (If you follow me on Facebook, you’d probably have gathered this already!) This warm pumpkin and apple harvest salad is pretty awesome in my ever so humble opinion. (No one else is going to toot my horn, okay, so I have to do it myself). I came up with it for a Halloween luncheon last year but since I don’t really care for Halloween anymore (rebel, I know) and we’re now past that and onto greater things, like CHRISTMAS (and Thanksgiving for you North American folk), I prefer to label it as a ‘harvest’ salad. Sure, it may be Spring here in Australia, but its Fall elsewhere in the world. So I’m all over this ‘harvest’ thing… so shush. Lucky I can get away with eating pumpkins here pretty much all year round as they never seem to go out of fashion and because where I live, we’re just plain awesome like that.

 

I love it served warm but whatever floats your boat. The sweetness of the balsamic and the honey ‘glazed’ walnuts adds a little twist to the usual salad side dishes that, you know, can sometimes get a bit repetitive. I like to live life on the edge.
