Roasted Pumpkin Salad with Homemade Honey Vinaigrette Dressing

I love roasted vegetables. I love all things pumpkin. I love salads. I love eating healthy. So this recipe was definitely a no-brainer for me. I basically combined some of my favorite things and made them into one incredibly delicious meal.

Roasting vegetables brings out a sweetness and adds a heighten flavor to your vegetables, and that is true when roasting pumpkin. Roasting pumpkin intensifies the natural sweetness of pumpkin; therefore making it perfect on it’s own but especially delicious on my Roasted Pumpkin Salad.

I also roasted onions and some pumpkin seeds for this easy salad recipe. Bring on all the roasted deliciousness!

I absolutely love the burst of the pomegranate seeds on this salad.

I used feta cheese, which was absolutely incredible. But my husband is not a feta fan, so he used goat cheese and it was equally as delicious. I mean, how could you go wrong with goat cheese on anything really?

The salad dressing is made from scratch, and incredibly easy to make. You just need lemon juice, honey, olive oil, salt, pepper and some fresh thyme if you have it on hand. This simple honey vinaigrette salad dressing will still be yummy if you don’t have thyme and you don’t feel like running to the store. Trust me, I know the feeling 😉
