Fennel and Rucola salad with pumpkin seed oil

2 comments Feb 13th, 2011 | By | Category: Recipes, Salads and Dressings

Fennel and Rucola pair very well. What fits both of them perfectly is pumpkin seed oil. I have made a dressing with honey, mustard, some vinegar and pumpkin seed oil. A great fresh tasting salad!

Preparation time: 10 minutes

difficulty: easy


  • 1 fennel bulb
  • 7 oz of Rucola
  • 4 tbsp pumpkin seed oil
  • 1 tbsp mustard
  • 1 ts honey
  • 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • salt and pepper
  • pumpkin seed oil


Wash the fennel and the Rucola well. Cut the fennel into thin stripes and mix with the Rucola in a bowl.

For the dressing mix the salt, pepper, vinegar, honey and mustard in a cup until the salt and the honey have dissolved. Then add the pumpkin seed oil and mix well. Mix with the salad and serve.
