Scrumptious Candied Walnuts

A couple of weeks ago, Christine promised you I would share the recipe  I use for the Candied Walnuts I add to my version of Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza & Grill Balsamic Grilled Chicken Salad and I’m here today to deliver!  This recipe is straight from the cookbook Southern California Cooking From The Cottage – no twists or variations necessary.  These candied walnuts are absolutely delicious just as they are and are soy, dairy, and gluten free to boot!  Christine used to tease me that I took the time to make these, because who has extra time these days?  Especially when there are some really delicious store bought alternatives out there.  However, as soon as she tasted one she understood why I do.  Yes, these take some additional time and yes, they add more than a few calories to your salad, but man are they worth it!  You may want to make a few extra just to snack on.  Enjoy!

      What a great idea Keri! I am adding them now – you aren’t the only one who would want to eat them, but not make them! 🙂 Thank you!
