Roasted pumpkin salad, topped with grilled chicken, a drizzle of chive and sage dressing and a sprinkle of seed & nut clusters.

1. Set oven to 220ÂșC.
Cut red onion into wedges. Toss on a lined oven tray with pumpkin and 1/2 packet sage, 1 tbsp oil, salt and pepper. Roast for 20-25 minutes or until pumpkin is tender.

2. Heat a frypan over medium-high heat. Add seed mix, 1/2 tbsp oil and 1 tbsp sugar. Cook, stirring, until clusters are formed. Tip onto a plate on a piece of baking paper to cool. Season with a little salt, if you like.

3. Chop chives and remaining sage leaves. Combine in a shallow bowl with 3 tbsp olive oil, 2 tsp dijon mustard, 1 1/2 tbsp vinegar, salt and pepper.

4. Heat a griddle or frypan with 1 tbsp oil over medium-high heat. Halve chicken thigh fillets (see notes), add to pan and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from pan and place into bowl with dressing.

5. Wash and roughly tear lettuce. Slice capsicum and wedge tomatoes.
Layer on a serving platter with roasted pumpkin and onion.
