Rocket and Roast Pumpkin Salad
Chinese New Year is the one day a year I struggle to observe half a day of vegetarianism. Once the clock strikes 12 noon, I eagerly resume the taking of souls. I've actually made this salad for lunch a couple of times, so it speaks volumes about how delicious it is. The pumpkin can be roasted in advance and I would recommend adding the dressing at the last minute as it tends to wilt the rocket. The recipe is from Taste.com.au but I prefer using Jap Pumpkin (rustically cut the pumpkin in one inch pieces and roast for an hour at 180°C) and baby rocket.
