Unrecipe of the Week

June 29, 2012

I am always looking for new and interesting salads. This blend of frisee and endive is enhanced with fresh oranges,tossed in a honey shallot vinaigrette, and  finished with a dusting of crushed hazelnuts.

Endive and Frisee Salad with Oranges and Hazelnuts

For the salad:

Belgium Endive, sliced thin

Frisee leaves, torn into small pieces

Orange sections, cut in half

For Dressing:

Whisk together  1/2 cup balsamic vinegar, 1 or 2 tablespoons of chopped shallots, 1 tablespoon of honey  and !/3 cup olive oil.

Season with salt and black pepper to taste.

For the topping:

Roast hazelnuts in a hot oven for about 7-10 minutes, until they are browned. Allow to cool slightly.

Rub the nuts between your hands to remove the skin. Chop in the food processor or place in a bag and roll over then with a rolling pin until well crushed.

To assemble:
Toss the lettuce with the dressing, and pile on individual plates. Place orange slices around the edge of the salad decoratively.

Sprinkle with toasted and chopped hazelnuts, and enjoy!
