Can I substitute fennel for fennel seeds? And is it ok not to add walnut oil?

I have a question about the recipe "Red Leaf Salad with Roasted Beets, Oranges and Walnuts" from Teresa Parker.

i think you're fine substituting fennel; it is less pungent than its seeds. Sure you can leave out walnut oil; it just gives it a toasty flavor. It's the same with sesame oil; if you don't have it, you can substitute with other oil; it just won't taste the same or as good.
