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.

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  2. 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.
  3. To make the dressing, whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, shallot, mustard, thyme, and salt and pepper.
  4. Toss the radicchio, romaine, and arugula with the dressing. Divide the greens among plates, top each with some of the roasted fruits, and serve.
