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. Yum!

I left out the tartine and just made the salad, which was very flavorful. I used raw, grated beets; otherwise I followed the salad recipe exactly. The avocados and beets went well together, and the simple dressing was a perfect complement. If you don't want to make the tartine, you can just toss some crumbled goat cheese into the salad.

Couldn't ask for a finer salad. Elegant and delicious. Impressive presentation. I used fresh basil for the crostinis, raised the ratio of olive oil to vinegar to the 3:1 I prefer, used a mix of romaine, arugula and baby spinach (what I happened to have in in the fridge) and toasted pecans. Awesome good.
