I usually make candied nuts to go on a salad, but they are also a fun snack. They are really easy and add such a great touch to a salad. There's not much else to say, except YUMMM!
Candied Almonds or Pecans
1-2 cups almonds or pecans
2-4 Tbsp white sugar
Put desired amount of nuts in fine mesh colander, rinse with water just enough to get all of the nuts wet. Pour nuts into a medium size non-stick skillet and stir in 2-4 Tbsp of sugar. I usually do about 2 Tbsp sugar for 1 cup of nuts, you can do as much or as little as you like. Over medium-low to medium heat, cook nuts until they are no longer wet and they start to brown, stirring frequently. I kind of like my pecans a little more toasted than almonds, I get them slightly black. Cool and serve on salad or eat as a snack.
