As it turns out, I am not one of the lucky ones who can happily sit down to a huge bowl of salad greens and chow down. If I find a salad I truly like it must have accessories. And when I say accessories I mean a very nice helping of cheese, nuts, balsamic vinegar, herbs and/or fruit among other things. I just cannot enjoy plain old lettuce like some people do (including my husband).
I recently discovered a stellar combination of these accessories and also figured out a way to ensure I would get a generous dose with each piece of lettuce. These little salad rolls are more for the adults, but I did manage to talk my daughters into trying them since they do contain what they already know they love – glazed nuts! And I do have to say the glazed nuts almost taste like candy and are fabulous even as a snack just by themselves. There is no better way to make a plain old bowl of lettuce delicious.

What do the glazed nuts taste like? Are they sweet or savory? I want some glazed nuts for a salad with mixed berries and don’t know if this will go well or not and I don’t want to make the cinnamon glazed nuts because of the sugar.
Hi Paige. These are both savory and sweet. :)
Do the nuts have to be refrigerated or can they be left on the counter / in the pantry? I just made them and they are delicious! Thank you!!
Hi Jennifer. They will be okay in a airtight container for a few days on the counter.
How long will these nuts last in the refrigerator?
Hi Pia. I’ve kept them up to a week.
How fun! I love this idea! I’ve shared it with on my blog as well. http://bit.ly/18pj66l
Do you know how I could make these with a pomegranite juice glaze?
I’ve never tried it…you might just have to experiment!
This was so yummy! I’m the same way with my inability to eat a lot of lettuce so this was perfect. Thanks!
