Noni Lucy's Pumpkin Salad

Sandra McGrath


I posted this recipe before but without a photo of the finished dish. I finally got around to making this fabulous salad and taking a photo before we ate it! This dish holds such memories for me of the late summer, early fall when my noni Lucy would make it for us. She used everything and wasted nothing and although pumpkin pie is good, this is a lighter dish that can be used as a side to a late summer picnic.
