Autumnal Pumpkin Salad

Autumnal Pumpkin Salad

This salad is the definition of autumn. Roasted caramelised pumpkin with figs, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, quinoa, rocket and a honey mustard vinaigrette.  It takes less than 40 minutes from start to finish (and the longest part is waiting patiently for the pumpkin to cook). The dressing and glaze are made with NKD Living’s high-fibre, low-sugar Naked Syrup meaning this salad is perfect for anyone following a low sugar diet or simply watching their calorie intake.
