I use it as finishing touch -- I particularly love it on hearty salads made with spicy greens (like arugula), toasted nuts, and shavings of a hard cheese like pecorino romano. Use it sparingly as it's strong. So with a salad, you should make the main dressing with a mild olive or vegetable oil, and then sprinkle some of the pumpkin seed oil over top almost as a garnish.

I drizzled them on pumpkin sage ravioli;)

Also try it sprinkled on a bed of shaved radishes with a smattering of herbs or microgreens.
