This pumpkin salad is dedicated to a dear friend who loves pumpkin so SO much. Every time we have potluck at hers or her boyfriend's place, she would ask me to make something with pumpkin. I know it's not exactly the pumpkin season right now but we are fortunate to have the luxury to get them from a few local farms here in Yuen Long. I especially like the mini squash because they give off a much sweeter flavor.
Another starter that I always make is bruschetta. There are many different ways to make bruschetta. I usually make it according to what I have in my fridge or what I can get in the nearest supermarket. There are times when I can't find mozzarella cheese (like today) and if it happens, I usually just skip it. And sometime if I happen to pass by Il Bel Paese, I would grab a small bowl of fresh olives in oil to add to my bruschetta. Just be flexible and creative. Our imagination is unlimited. :)
Have a good week ahead! x
