Pumpkin and Beet Salad

First  up  I have pumpkin and beet salad, which is a delicious and healthy Australian inspired salad that incorportes roasted fresh  pumpkin  with beets, nuts and cheese.

It is perfect as a side salad for many  autumn meals including those of the Mediterranean and of course Australia, and the USA as well.
