Salad ingredients


  • Preheat the oven to 220°C.
  • Cut the pumpkin into large squares, leaving the skin on and seeds intact. Place skin side down, on a baking tray. Drizzle with 2 tbsp oil, cover evenly and sprinkle with sea salt. Roast the pumpkin in the oven for 30-45 minutes, until the pieces are very soft and the tips are slightly burned.
    1 Pie pumpkin, 2 + 4 tbsp olive oil
  • Combine 4 tbsp oil, honey, lime juice, then season to taste with sea salt and pepper. Taste the dressing and adjust the flavours to your preference. Transfer the roasted pumpkin pieces to a bowl and pour over half of the dressing (save the other half for the salad) and toss gently. While the oven is still warm, toast the almonds on a baking tray until golden, about 10 minutes.
    2 + 4 tbsp olive oil, 4 tbsp honey, 2 limes juice, sea salt and black pepper
  • Prepare the salad ingredients. In a large bowl, gently toss apples, fennels and lettuce. Add the remaining half of the dressing and combine. Arrange everything on a platter. Then tuck in the roasted pumpkin pieces, scatter with almonds and sprinkle with fennel fronds. Serve.
