Frisee, Orange, and Toasted Hazelnut Salad

Lyn showed me this recipe, I think it was planned because she bought a head of Frisee when we went shopping. She also had Maria grab a few oranges while she was out, Then left the recipe out. It was very good in fact with the left over she added some Anise, and Red Grapefruit chunks instead of the orange. Both were good.

The hazelnuts add crunch to this citrusy salad.
