---------------------------------------


Ingredients
1/4 cup chopped hazelnuts
500 g carrots, peeled
cup sliced spring onions
1 cup sunflower sprouts
1 tbsp sunflower seeds
1/4 cup orange juice
1 tbsp extra virgin Olive oil
Coarsely ground pepper
 
This is a wonderful salad which goes well with barbecued seafood or chicken. Do not prepare carrot ahead as it will go brown. Any fresh sprouts can be used.
   
 
Method:

1.   Toast hazelnuts in a dry frying pan over a moderate heat until they are golden brown (be careful they do not burn).

2.   Grate carrots, preferably using a food-processor blade to achieve the best texture and appearance. Toss lightly with spring onions, sprouts, sunflower seeds and half the hazelnuts.

3.   In blender, combine remaining hazelnuts, orange juice and olive oil. Pour over salad and sprinkle with pepper.
