Roasted Pumpkin (Or Winter Squash) on Lamb's Lettuce

Roasted Pumpkin (Or Winter Squash) on Lamb's Lettuce created by Sackville

This salad makes a lovely starter at a fall dinner party. It is a combination of lamb's lettuce topped with warm roasted pumpkin or squash, drizzled with a beautiful dressing and sprinkled with toasted pumpkin seeds. You may want to substitute the lamb's lettuce with another lettuce, although I must say the combination works beautifully. This serves 6 as a starter or 2-3 as a main dish.

    I love colourful salads like this one. I already had the squash roasting in the oven when I came across this recipe, so I didn't season it with garlic or the spices, but I will be sure to next time. Even fairly plain this was a lovely salad. I would use the dressing as a standard quite happily, just to have around the kitchen, and the seeds are the crowning touch. Great combination of textures.
