Preparation

  1. Pre-heat oven to 375°
  2. Toast the hazelnuts on a baking tray for 10 minutes.
  3. Remove the nuts, and rub them in a tea towel to remove the skins. Set aside, cool, and crush into pieces with a rolling pin. Move the rolling pin back and forth with the nuts still inside the towel.
  4. Slice the endive into thin coins and chop the tomatoes into cubes. Roma tomatoes are an excellent substitute for vine-ripened tomatoes.
  5. Slice the bread into cubes.
  6. In a large stainless steel bowl, toss the tomatoes and endive. Add the olive oil, red wine vinegar, and hazelnut oil. Season with salt and pepper.
  7. Cover with plastic wrap refrigerate for 15 minutes. Add the bread and parsley. Gently toss.
  8. Garnish with goat or blue cheese and hazelnuts.
