The flavors of autumn shine in this simple but elegant salad. Hazelnut oil is a lovely base for a vinaigrette and is worth seeking out in a specialty market.
|2 tablespoons||hazelnut oil|
|1 tablespoon||White wine vinegar|
|1/2 teaspoon||Dijon mustard|
|Salt and freshly ground black pepper (to taste)|
|4 ounces||Earthbound Farm Organic Spring Mix (or substitute Earthbound Farm Organic Baby Lettuces)|
|1/2 cup||toasted chopped hazelnuts|
|4 small||fresh figs (quartered, or 1 ripe pear, sliced)|
|1/3 cup||shredded or shaved Gruyère cheese|
Combine the dressing ingredients in a glass jar and shake vigorously to combine.
Pour the dressing in a large bowl. Add the greens and hazelnuts. Toss to coat.
Divide between chilled plates and garnish each serving with the figs and Gruyère.
