Maple Roasted Pumpkin Salad

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup pepitas (hulled pumpkin seeds), toasted
  • 1 sugar pumpkin (3 1/2 to 4 pounds), peeled, seeded, and cut in 1 1/2-inch chunks
  • 5 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 garlic cloves, unpeeled
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • Coarse salt and black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon pure maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • Spring Mix
  • 6 ounces feta cheese

Directions

  1. On a large, rimmed baking sheet, toss pumpkin with 2 tablespoons oil, garlic, red pepper, salt, and black pepper. Roast, tossing occasionally, until pumpkin is tender, 25 to 30 minutes.
  2. Remove garlic cloves from sheet pan; set aside. Drizzle pumpkin with 2 tablespoons maple syrup; toss to coat. Return to oven and continue roasting, tossing occasionally, until pumpkin is glazed, 5 to 10 minutes more; let cool.
  3. Meanwhile, cut off root ends of garlic cloves; squeeze out garlic and mash to a paste with the side of a knife. Transfer to a large bowl. Add lime juice, mustard, and remaining maple syrup; season with salt and pepper. Whisking constantly, add remaining oil in a steady stream; set aside.
  4. Add Spring Mix and pumpkin and toss to combine. Serve salad sprinkled with toasted pepitas and crumbled feta cheese.
