Amazing salad with wonderful strong flavours. I thought the cinnamon might be overpowering, but it was not. My daughter took this to a pumpkin feast -- most dishes featured pumpkin. It was a bit too tart for a few people, but many said it was the very best dish of the night. I overcooked the pumpkin a bit, which made it a little mushy, so try to avoid that when you make it. I also used sunflower seeds in place of pumpkin seeds, because they were on hand. Made and thoroughly enjoyed for Pick a Chef.
