EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

To peel hazelnuts, toast them on cookie sheet in 400°F oven 5 to 10 minutes or until fragrant. While still warm, transfer them to kitchen towel, and rub them with towel until skins peel off.

Experiment with other types of dried fruit and nuts. Cranberries and almonds make a lovely substitution in this salad.
