Shopping List
    For the Salad
  • 2 large handfuls arugula
  • 6 medium figs, sliced
  • 33333333/100000000 cup blanched hazelnuts or marcona almonds (Note 1)
  • 1 1/2 ounces goat cheese, crumbled (or dairy-free boursin cheese) For the Balsamic Vinaigrette
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon good balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions
  1. Step 1: Whisk together all vinaigrette ingredients. Set aside.
  2. Step 2: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spread the nuts on a baking sheet and roast for 4 to 6 minutes, or until golden. Keep an eye on them to prevent burning.
  3. Step 3: Combine the arugula, sliced figs, and toasted nuts in a mixing bowl. Drizzle with the vinaigrette, to taste, and toss gently.
  4. Serve: Divide onto plates and top with the goat cheese. Enjoy.

Recipe Notes

Note 1: To blanch hazelnuts yourself, bring a saucepan of water to a boil. Fill the pot about half of the way, otherwise it will overflow later. Once boiling, add in 3 tablespoons of baking soda (the pot will bubble up rapidly), then the hazelnuts. Boil for 3 to 4 minutes. The water will turn inky black. Drain the nuts in the sink and rinse well with cold water. Remove the skins by rubbing the skins off with a paper towel or your fingers.
