CROOK

4 little pumpkins...

...sitting on a gate.

You know I love making my own dressings.  Economical, fun and yummy. 
Raw pumpkin in a dressing though?  Oh yes my friends.

It's spooky tasty on it's own as a dip, but when I tossed it with a fresh spinach, raisin, walnut, and roasted beet salad?!?!?  What can I say?  We ate it all!



Crooked Pumpkin Dressing

1 1/2 cups of chopped fresh pumpkin (peeled and seeded of course)
1 Tbs maple syrup
2 Tbs flax/vegan DHA oil (or olive oil)
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 Tbs Bragg's Liquid Aminos
1 tsp curry powder
1 clove of garlic
pinch of cinnamon

Blend everything until smooth.

This tastes really good with every veggie I dipped in it (carrots, cucumbers, zucchini, tomatoes, jicama...) but I really liked it in this salad. 

Give it a try pumpkin head!

  1. So yummy! I wonder if it would taste good in a kale salad---- tons of kale coming up!

  2. Very unique recipe. I do believe this is the first dressing I've seen made with pumpkin. I love the serving dish your salad is in. It's beautiful. What is it made of?

  3. Hi MIndy. It's sterling silver coated...I believe....It was a wedding gift. :)
    Samantha - definitely, it would go well with the strong kale taste. IMO
