Pumpkin, Parsley and Pomegranate salad

This makes a zingy, refreshing vegetarian salad, great at any time of the year.



1⁄2 pumpkin (about 750g), cubed

2 garlic cloves, chopped

1⁄2 red pepper, sliced

100g Feta cheese, crumbled

Parsley, small bunch

200g cherry tomatoes, halved

1⁄2 Pomegranate

1⁄2 red onion, finely sliced

25g pumpkin seeds, toasted

25g sunflower seeds, toasted

2tbs Reggae Reggae Hot Sauce

Olive oil

2 limes, juiced

Preheat the oven to 180º. Place the pumpkin on a tray, coat with 1tbs olive oil and the Reggae Reggae Hot Sauce. This X-HOT BBQ sauce packs a great punch, we go through a lot of this stuff in our kitchen!


Bake for 25 mins. Add the red pepper and bake for a further 10 minutes. Take out of the oven and set aside to cool.


When it has cooled add the other ingredients and mix well in a bowl.


Dress the salad with equal parts olive oil and lime juice and season with salt and pepper.

    I made the Pumpkin, parsley and pomegranate salad this evening. It was very tasty! I couldn’t find reggae reggae hot sauce, but substituted with another hot sauce and it was good. This was a great way to use the pumpkin I already had in my garden! Thanks!
