    Mirj's Note:

    This is a wonderful salad, good for Thanksgiving but we make it all year round. This is a traditional Sepharidic recipe.

      I used butternut squash in lieu of pumpkin. Unlike evewitch, I enjoyed the combination of seasonings, just found that it was initially under seasoned for my tastes. I ended up adding addtional smoked paprika (in addition to the regular initally used) and some extra cinnamon. I also found the suggestion to roast the squash before scraping problematic as the softness of the cooked squash made it had to remove the seeds difficult. Next time I will scape first. All that said, I did enjoy the final product and will certainly make this again. Its a great way to use leftover squash. Thinking a touch of cumin might also be nice. Thanks Mirj as I certainly enjoyed the experimentation.

      We tried this. I don't feel right giving stars, because it just wasn't to our taste - the seasoning combination was just too different. I did find it too tart, even though I only used 2 T lemon juice (I ran out). Also, I used canned pumpkin.
