World Cafe Live & caramelized candied walnuts

Hey! Happy Wednesday hump day to you all! Another week that just keeps on flying 🙂

When I left you last on Monday, we were heading to the city with some friends for dinner, drinks & music at world café live! It was such a great time. We saw Federico Aubele { who George has been playing for years } So it was finally great to see him live!

>> listen here <<

We enjoyed cocktails, wine & lot’s of sharing of food! My camera didn’t work well in the dim lighting, but here’s a few pics!

Now onto caramelized candied walnuts. A simple thing, but whenever I see them on a salad I always gravitate towards that salad. Something about them that I love! I love sweets, so there’s no issue with me having sweets in my salads either 😉

They became caramelized due to one ingredient I added: coconut oil.

What you need:

  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1 cup sugar
  • dash of cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp. coconut oil
  • Pinch of sea salt

On medium heat, place walnuts on skillet. Pour sugar over them & watch carefully!
Stirring occasionally & add the 1 tbsp. of coco oil.
Once sugar has become a liquid place on a pan, sprinkle your cinnamon & salt and place in oven @450* until browned.
Let them dry ~ and put them in your favorite salad!

Great addition to any salad, but most defiantly a fall salad!

I’m linking up with Jenn over @ Peasandcrayons, time to go check out what is yummy over on her blog!

Are you a fan of caramelized walnuts in your salad, or fruit? Or do you tend to stick to just a veggie salad?

  1. caramelized nuts in salads are my favourite!!! My Mom just made me a huge batch of maple pecans which I dump on my salads…there’s probably more nuts than salads haha.

    Also that cocktail sounds so good! I love anything grapefruit flavoured 🙂

  4. Love candied walnuts!! I too always gravitate towards them. I made some last winter. Well actually not some, I had a gallon size bag full of them haha. I made them for my boyfriend’s family, and they enjoyed them! I might have to make some more now 😉
