  1. this salad is fantastic. the flavors of the all the different lettuces and the fennel and the hazelnuts. My guests could not stop eating it. the dressing is great too. dont forget to toast the hazelnuts.. I used fresh garlic in the dressing and I left out the mint-not a fan of mint in salads . highly recommend this salad
