Recipe: Orange and Hazelnut Salad

I was recently given some oranges from a friends tree and after using a lot of them in juices I decided I should be a bit more creative with the remainder of the oranges. Given my love of salads it seemed an obvious choice, and I decided to bulk it out with some fresh, crisp green beans and the addition of roast hazelnuts. It’s simple but turned out delicious and was happily devoured by friends when I took it to a barbeque.

Ingredients List

  • 3/4 cup hazelnuts
  • Green beans
  • 4 oranges (3 for the salad and 1 for the dressing)
  • Mixed greens
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2tbs olive oil



  1. Preheat oven to 180C
  2. Spread the hazelnuts on a tray and roast for 7-8 minutes. Rub the skins off as best you can then roughly chop
  3. Trim the ends off the beans and cook in boiling water for 4 minutes. Drain then submerge in ice water before draining again
  4. Peel and chop 3 of the oranges into quarters or eighths. Remove the pips and as much of the pith as possible
  5. To make the dressing add the juice of one orange, minced garlic and oil to a bowl and whisk until combined
  6. Add all ingredients to a salad bowl and toss to combine and then drizzle the dressing over the top
  7. Enjoy!

      I’ve only recently become a fan of hazelnuts in salads but they work really well! Add a nice crunch to things!
