I have been inspired by a couple of the recent recipes containing pumpkin and whipped this up for lunch. It's the first time I've used raw pumpkin and it has a wonderful sweet and clean taste.

Recipe Directions

Blend dressing ingredients in food processor/blender until smooth. (Mine was thick but coated the salad vege's nicely)

Chop salad vegetables, spoon over dressing and sprinkle sunflower/pumpkin seeds on top. Perhaps another squeeze of lime plus a little salt to balance out the flavours.

Yum - just finished my lunch. It is very filling :-)

Haha, Jack's very cute!

In regard to the pumpkin, yes, the really large pumpkins are floury and virtually tasteless. A variety of smaller pumpkin with a deep orange flesh will have a great flavour for raw recipes. Fortunately, I'm spoilt for choice in Sydney! Good luck.

Ha, I dunno what kind of dog the toy is, but when I got Jack (the Maine Coon in the photo) My sister got his brother, and we kept them together in my apartment for about two weeks. My sister took his brother after that, and I got this stuffed dog to cuddle with him. He still cuddles with it, even though, now, he's at least twice as big as the dog. :)

I am going to try this next week as soon as the local fruit stands gets some more sugar pumpkins (I've never seen any other locally grown pumpkins grown specifically for eating - I assume jack-o-lantern pumpkins would have less flavour?)

Hi silystarrfish.

Thank you, and yes it is a red bell pepper! I'm surprised at how much flavour raw pumpkin has. I can't wait to try out some raw pie recipes.

Haha... cute cat - is that a toy Cavalier in your pic? I have two burmese and, as you can see from my photo, a divine little King Charles named Coco.

Is capsicum Bell pepper?

This is my first raw fall, and I'm really excited about pumpkin - I've only ever had it in bread and pie. :)

This sounds delicious.
