For the Dressing

For the Pumpkin Salad


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C / 390F / Gas Mark 6.
  2. Put all the dressing ingredients except for the crème fraîche in a bowl with a tablespoon of water and a large pinch of salt. Mix together well until you have a thick emulsion. Stir in the crème fraîche, if using, season to taste, then leave so that the garlic infuses the sauce.
  3. Brush the pumpkin with olive oil then bake on a roasting tray until soft and coloured a little. Set aside in a warm place.
  4. Slowly fry the bacon until crisp then drain on kitchen paper. Break into shards and set aside in a warm place.
  5. Fry the black pudding then break into lumps. Set aside in a warm place.
  6. To assemble the salad, put the warm pumpkin, bacon and black pudding in a large bowl and briefly toss together with half the dressing (discard the garlic).

To Serve:

Transfer to a large serving dish or individual plates, scatter over the fennel, apple, tarragon and parsley, then add the rest of the dressing.
