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.

4 Servings


2 Tbsp

hazelnut oil

1 Tbsp

White wine vinegar

½ tsp

Dijon mustard

Salt and freshly ground black pepper (to taste)

4 oz

Earthbound Farm Organic Spring Mix (or substitute Earthbound Farm Organic Baby Lettuces)

½ cup

toasted chopped hazelnuts


fresh figs (quartered, or 1 ripe pear, sliced)

⅓ 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.
