According to HIF food guru Helen from Scrummy Lane: "The tastes in this simple salad just seem to perfectly balance each other out – the sweetness of the pumpkin, the peppery smokiness of the chorizo, the tart saltiness of the cheese and the roasted crunch of the pine nuts, all piled on top of your choice of green salad leaves and lightly doused in a sweet, tangy honey balsamic dressing is just delicious!". Enjoy!
