    Excellent salad! I did not make the tartine, but rather compiled the salad and then crumbled the cheese on top. I also used pecans instead of hazelnuts, and all arugula instead of a mix. The flavor is outstanding-- the sweetness of the beets blends very well with the tartness of the cheese. The avocado and pecans make it rich and decadent.
