Top 10 Recipes of 2009… According To Me

5. Pumpkin & Spinach Salad

For a while there, salad meant iceberg lettuce, tomato wedges and slices of cucumber tossed with white vinegar. Maybe a couple of olives and onion slices if you wanted to be exotic.

Now salads have taken on a life of their own and have become meals in themselves. They are no longer an accompaniment, they are the stars of the show.

The concept of a good salad is having flavours that work well together and varying textures. Everyone loves salad with a bite or crunch to them.

This particular salad is one of my favourites because I loved the smoothness of the pumpkin, the glossy fresh spinach leaves and the bite of the pine nuts that gives the salad some ‘meatiness’.

I have also grilled some prosciutto and served it atop this salad for an extra depth of flavour and have also added slices of fried haloumi cheese as well. YUM!
