This delicious salad is the result of a bumper crop of pumpkins at Janell Burrell's place in Cornelia, Georgia. "I had so many on hand, I started experimenting with different ways of preparing them," she smiles. "The sweet dish I'm sharing here is one we all enjoy."

    Definitely a different use of pumpkin; sort of like a waldorf salad. Not bad; but it seemed to take people by surprise. Most people described it as "interesting."
