I'm not a big fan of salads, but this was pretty good and very much enjoyed by everyone this Thanksgiving. I tweaked the dressing a bit because it tasted strangely bitter, but otherwise it had good flavor. The queso fresco and pepitas were perfect in this.

This salad is great exactly as written. Spectacular flavour - we loved this. I've also made this substituting sunflower seeds for the pumpkin seeds and that was delicious as well. Thanks for posting!

Uh Oh, I forgot to review this one...I ADORE THIS SALAD. It is so different and yummy and i LOVE the dressing and the combo of ingredients. I use green onion instead of red and in a pinch, i've used sunflower seeds if I can't make it to the right store for the pumpkin seeds. Thank you SOOOO much for posting. I plan Mexican and Tex Mex nights just so I can have this salad!

Super salad! Definitely 5 star. A bit higher than my usual low fat fare, though I did reduce the oil to less than 1 tablespoon and subbed water for the rest of the oil and used low fat yogurt instead of sour cream and oil based low fat mayo. BF even ate some avocado although he claims he hates it, and instead of pumpkin seed I used toasted sunflower seeds (easier to find and I happened to have some). We cut the recipe in half and ate all of it. Thanks! Very pleased, made for ZWT 5.
