I am loving salads at the moment. The summer temperatures have been high and have really diminished my appetite. When it’s hot at night I find a salad is all I really want to eat. Saying that, I admit that eating the same garden salad over and over again can become monotonous, even for a salad lover like me! So, let me introduce you to this delicious Roasted Pumpkin and Avocado Salad. It is super light but really tasty and I have no problem putting the oven on when the result is sweet and golden roasted pumpkin pieces. Delicious!
This is one of my favourite salads because it is so delicious and really easy to make. The sweetness of the roasted pumpkin works beautifully with the creaminess of the avocado, and the roasted pepitas provide a wonderful source of crunch. If you’re looking for some extra protein, then add your favourite cold meat. Try some cold roasted chicken, some sliced turkey breast, some canned tuna in spring water or some cold hard-boiled eggs.
If you’re feeling super keen, then roast a big batch of pumpkin the day before and use it for this salad as well as adding it to your other salads for the next three to four days. Just keep it simple and easy in this hot weather, and enjoy all of the beautiful, fresh summer produce that is available at the moment.

I’m a massive fan of home made almond milk. It tastes great and it’s so simple to make with just two ingredients! It wins hands down in any competition against the store bought varieties of almond milk. It contains a greater proportion of almonds to water, it has no nasty additives, preservatives or thickeners, and …
