Pumpkin and Cashew Salad

This is a variation on a salad we enjoyed in the Caribbean, where cashews grow in abundance. Tossing in a handful of dried cranberries would be good too!

2 c. cooked and cooled bite-sized (peeled) pumpkin or winter squash cubes

1/2 c. toasted cashew nuts

1 Tbsp. snipped parsley or carrot tops

1 Tbsp. olive oil

2 tsp. lemon juice

1-2 tsp. honey (depending on your sweet tooth!)

Toss the pumpkin, cashews, and parsley lightly in a bowl.

Whisk together the oil, lemon juice and honey and gently stir into the salad.


To toast nuts in the oven: Spread nuts out in a single layer on a cookie sheet.

Bake in preheated 350 oven for about 5-10 minutes or until just starting to brown and are fragrant. Stir once or twice, to make sure they toast evenly.

To toast nuts on the stove top: spread nuts out in a single layer (don't overcrowd) in a heavy skillet. Cook dry over medium heat, stirring or shaking the pan frequently, until the nuts are just starting to brown and are fragrant (5 min.)
