Nut oils, such as hazelnut, walnut, and almond, are a boon to salads, adding a hint of nutty flavor that melds particularly well with fruit juice or fruit-infused vinegars. Try this on a salad of arugula, pear, hazelnuts, and goat cheese with a sprinkling of chopped chives.
- 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1/4 cup orange juice
- 1/4 cup hazelnut oil
- 1 1/2 tsp. grated orange zest
- 1/2 cup olive oil
Whisk together vinegar, orange juice, hazelnut oil and orange zest in blow. Slowly pour in olive oil while whisking. Season with salt and pepper.
