Recipe Tips

If you don’t fancy hazelnuts, you could always get a bit of extra crunch from a few croûtons (although the crust on the sourdough toast should be great anyway) or substitute them for pine nuts. If you’re not a fan of goats’ cheese this salad would also make a great accompaniment to roast chicken.
