Baby Lettuce Salad with Figs and Hazelnuts


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.
