KABOCHA SQUASH (JAPANESE PUMPKIN) SALAD RECIPE

Have you tried kabocha squash (Japanese pumpkin)?

I’ve never known there are so many kinds of squash in the world until I start writing this blog.
I guess each one of them has their own characteristics and cooking method to match with them.

Japanese kabocha squash is extremely good if you make salad with your favorite nuts or dried fruits.

Mashed kabocha squash is very smooth and already sweet without sugar.
Just like the potato salad I made, it’s my family’s best collection of salad!!

Please enjoy nutrient-rich and delicious dish!

This is also great smooth salad! Please check out JAPANESE POTATO SALAD RECIPE.
