    carolinajen4's Note:

    This is an elegant, yet simple salad. I tend to make it often since it's the only recipe I use hazelnut oil in. Taken from The Cook's Encyclopedia of Vegetarian Cooking.

      What a taste treat this is! Everything just blends together to create a great taste sensation. I had Italian Parmesan and it wouldn't curl when I shaved it but the flavor Mmmm. I cut the salad back to one serving and used 1 tsp of Walnut oil. A definite will do again salad.

      I love this salad and have the same recipe in one of my cookbooks except it doesn't mention the optional bleu cheese (it's either or for this recipe-parm or bleu but not both.) I toast the walnuts first. To tone down the strong peppery flavor of arugula I sub some baby spinach leaves or loose leaf lettuce. Thanks cg
