I saw this recipe in Food Network Magazine. They call for pepitas, which are pumpkin seeds. I started thinking, hmmmm..., can we eat the melons' s seeds? I looked it up on the Internet and they are supposed to be dried, then roasted. A long process. I just wanted to make a simple salad, for crying out loud! I toasted them over low heat in a little cast iron skillet5. Voila! They came lovely golden and nutty. To get all the vitamins and minerals in the seeds, they must be chewed, not eaten whole.
