Pumpkin Seed Oil Dressing

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Thorsten

The use of pumpkin seed oil gives this salad dressing a unique nutty flavour. A mild honey (e.g. glover honey) in addition with the aceto balsamico will give the dressing a fruity sweetness. Dijon mustard will top it off with slight pepperiness. This dressing works fine with any kind of lettuce.

This is a keeper! It's quick, it's easy, and it's way better than anything on the store shelves!! This is in regular rotation on my menu plans

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 12 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon aceto balsamico, preferrably blanco
  • 12 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 12 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin seed oil
  • 1 pinch salt


  1. Put all ingredients in a small bowl.
  2. Whisk together with a fork or small whisker until emulgated.
  3. Dressing is enough for about 16-20 cups lettuce. Use some toasted pumpkin seeds for topping.
  4. NOTE: Instead of pumpkin seed oil you can try other specialty oils like toasted sesame seed oil or walnut oil. But you should start then with less than 1 teaspoon to evaluate the flavour.
