Unusual and delicious salad. I loved the cumin dressing but the recipe for Recipe #245169 was very sweet. I would have rather had a spicy seed recipe instead of sweet. But the cumin dressing redeemed this salad and it and I wouldn't hesitate to make it again but I will probably just use regular toasted pumpkin seeds.
