Cooking healthy and wholesome meals for guests and special occasions has never been easier with Danielle Walker’s Against All Grain Celebration.
Roasting the fruits for this salad in a little balsamic vinegar and olive oil provides a beautiful depth of flavor and a natural sweetness that balances the acidity of the dressing. Once assembled, this is a stunning salad, and the toasted hazelnuts add a lovely crunch.
- Preheat the oven to 400°F.
- Toss the figs, grapes, apple, hazelnuts, vinegar, and olive oil together and spread the fruits and nuts out evenly on a rimmed baking sheet. Roast for 15 minutes, gently tossing once halfway through, until the fruit has softened. Remove from the oven and cool for 15 minutes.
- To make the dressing, whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, shallot, mustard, thyme, and salt and pepper.
- Toss the radicchio, romaine, and arugula with the dressing. Divide the greens among plates, top each with some of the roasted fruits, and serve.
