The mighty pumpkin! More than a pie, more than a jack-0-lantern . . . now it's the source of one of the top 3 nutritional oils . . . and it's delicious to boot!

Of course, pumpkin is a great low-fat, high fiber nutritional food, high in beta-kerotene and vitamin C. Now there's great, recent news of the benefits of pumpkin seed oil, especially from the variety known as Styrian pumpkins. This delicious oil is high in anti-oxidants, unsaturated fats, omega-3 oil and vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, C, D, E and K (whew!) . . . as well as beneficial for urinary tract and prostate health.

Try this delicious salad dressing for a refreshing, healthful change:

2 tbsp. pumpkin seed oil

4 tbsp. virgin olive oil

2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar

Shake and pour on your favorite salad greens. Sprinkle some pumpkin seeds on top & enjoy.

That's a GREAT PUMPKIN salad full of health. Yum!
