Hazelnut Vinaigrette

Hazelnut Vinaigrette

Makes about ½ cup

Top steamed vegetables such as asparagus, broccoli and cauliflower florets with this simple vinaigrette. The nuts add a nice crunch to salads of seasonal greens as well. Prepare just before serving to preserve the nuts' appealing texture. For a variation, use toasted macademia nuts and oil instead of hazelnuts.

  • 1/2 shallot, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
  • 1/4 cup hazelnut oil
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/3 cup roasted hazelnuts, roughly chopped
