Green Bean Salad with Pumpkin Seed Oil



  • 50 ml GEA Styria-Prekmurje Pumpkin Seed Oil
  • 400 g frozen green beans
  • 400 g prosciutto
  • 1 teaspoon chopped anchovy fillets
  • 1 teaspoon chopped capers
  • 2 cans of tuna
  • 150 ml salad vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  • Salt and pepper


Cook green beans in salted boiling water. Cut ham into thin strips. Dump the canned tuna into a bowl. Use a fork to gently break up any larger chunks of tuna.

To make the salad dressing, combine GEA Styria-Prekmurje Pumpkin Seed Oil, diluted vinegar, salt, pepper, mustard and ketchup. Mix well.

Gently toss all ingredients together and place in refrigerator to chill for an hour.

Spoon salad into the middle of lettuce leaves and garnish with chopped herbs.

Prosciutto can be substituted with smoked bacon and GEA Styria-Prekmurje Pumpkin Seed Oil can be substituted with GEA Salad Oil (blend of unrefined pumpkin seed oil and refined sunflower oil).

Bon appétit!
