Sylvia’s Truffle Salad with Walnuts

Sylvia's Truffle Salad with Walnuts

If you’ve treated yourself to a truffle or two, here’s a simple recipe idea to accompany a roast chicken, duck or thick grilled steak. Prepare a salad with York Town Organics Baby Cos and Micro Salad Leaves. I’ve also used Radicchio from my kitchen garden, a beautiful deep ruby-red Italian chicory I grow for the winter. Season and dress with your favourite salad dressing. Add lightly toasted cracked walnuts and crumbled chévre or feta and garnish with finely sliced pieces of truffle from Tamar Valley Truffles. Takes me back to when I hosted the opening of the Truffle Season at Launceston’s Harvest Market in June 2012. Delicious! Sylvia x
