1⁄4 cup hazelnut oil

2 Tbsp red wine vinegar

Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

2 ripe pears, cored, each cut into 8 wedges

Preheat oven to 350º.

Place hazelnuts on a cookie sheet and roast for 8 to 10 minutes. Allow to cool. Then, with your fingers, rub the skins off the hazelnuts.

Roughly chop the nuts.
