Warm Beet Salad with Toasted Hazelnut & Blueberry


Whisk oil and vinegar together to create an emulsion (so they don't separate). Whisk in other ingredients. Sprinkle over salad and serve.


Want to add just a little more flavor to your salad? Instead of buying shake cheese, which is too easy to use in large quantities and does not have a lot of flavor, invest in a good fine grater (like a Microplane) and buy a chunk of Romano cheese to grate at the table. This actually results in less cheese being used and a more flavorful addition to the meal.
