The delicately crisp, slightly sweet taste of the Krauthäuptel makes it a valuable dish and healthy companion to any meal. The rich green lettuce with reddish leaf tips literally enters into a natural symbiosis with seed oil, but it is also an enjoyment with other delicious dressings. Every year, more than 10 million heads of the Styrian lettuce speciality reach the market, which is popular among more than just Styrians. It is harvested early in the morning so that it still arrives fresh in the salad bowl on the same day. The most popular leaf salad in Styria is not just a true culinary pleasure, but it also has something in the "head", namely a wealth of vitamin C, minerals and fibre. Depending on the taste, the Krauthäuptel can be combined with fresh herbs, such as chives, parsley, cress or basil. It tastes best with fresh radishes and of course the original Styrian pumpkin seed oil.
