Celery, Pear, and Hazelnut Salad

Food & Wine

Jerry Traunfeld makes this refreshing salad with a trio of crunchy ingredients -- celery, Asian pear, and toasted hazelnuts -- then dresses it with a tangy vinaigrette. "Celery is underappreciated as a salad ingredient," he says. "And Asian pears also have that great crunch." Traunfeld prefers the sweet, oval-shaped DuChilly hazelnut over the rounder, more common variety. A good source for DuChilly nuts is Holmquist Hazelnut Orchards (holmquisthazelnuts.com).
