Hazelnut Vinaigrette


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 500 degrees F.

  • To prepare vinaigrette: Place 2 tablespoons hazelnuts, vinegar, water and mustard in a food processor or blender; process until as smooth as possible. With the motor running, add 1/4 cup oil in a slow stream through the feed tube until well blended. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons hazelnuts, thyme, 3/4 teaspoon salt and pepper; process for a few seconds more or until the consistency is loose and chunky. Transfer to a small container and stir in shallot.

  • To prepare salad: Toss Brussels sprouts with oil and salt on a large rimmed baking sheet. Roast until tender, 5 to 7 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, suprême the oranges: Cut a thin slice off the top and bottom of each. Place on a flat surface. Slice off the peel and white pith below, following the curve of the fruit as you go. Holding the fruit over a large bowl, use a small sharp knife to cut between the membrane and each segment, letting the segments drop into the bowl. Drain any juice from the bowl.

  • Add the Brussels sprouts to the oranges along with cauliflower, radicchio, apricots and hazelnuts. Drizzle with the vinaigrette and gently toss to combine.


To make ahead: Refrigerate the dressing for up to 5 days.

Nice combo of roasted and toasted and sweet. I used one medium head of cheddar cabbage which worked well. Definitely took longer than 35min but I guess that's if all of the prep in the ingredient list has been done in advance. Read More
