INGREDIENTS

  • 40 nuts Hazelnuts or Filberts Nuts
  • 10 oz Arugula (Rocket)
  • 1/2 cup, crumbled Gorgonzola Cheese
  • 1 pear, medium (approx 2-1/2 per lb) Pears
  • 2 serving Maple-Dijon Vinaigrette

DIRECTIONS

Use the Atkins recipe to make Maple-Dijon Vinaigrette for this recipe.  You will need 4 tablespoons or 1/4 cup.  This salad is delicious served with salmon.
  
  1. Toast hazelnuts in a dry skillet for about 15 minutes or toast on a sheet pan in an oven at 350°F (stir 2-3 times for both methods); allow to cool and gently rub off outer skin, coarsely chop, and set aside.  
  2. Make the Maple-Dijon Vinaigrette and toss 4 tablespoons with the arugula and Gorgonzola cheese.  Transfer to serving plates.  
  3. Arrange the pear slices in a fan on top and sprinkle with hazelnuts.

Cooking Tip

Feel free to swap in your favorite lettuce for this recipe, as net carb change will likely be minimal.
