This is a pantry staple salad, something you can pull together quickly and serve at a summer lunch or picnic. The pumpkin and poppy seeds add crunch and flavor. You can substitute other grated veggies such as jicama or yellow squash, just make sure you are getting some color contrast. —BlueKaleRoad

I am a passionate home cook for my family and friends. I recently started writing a food blog (www.bluekaleroad.com) and love creating new recipes, writing about food and sharing stories. We are part of a CSA and really appreciate all the terrific produce grown in the Seattle area. In a continued effort to eat locally, we started raising backyard chickens (love our little flock!) and are enjoying the beautiful, fresh eggs. The Food52 community is inspiring and I find myself glued to the site checking out delicious recipes!
