Honey Walnuts

  • tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4  teaspoon  cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • cups  California walnuts

Fruit Salad

  • (1 lb) container strawberries halved
  • (6 oz) container blueberries
  • (6 oz) container blackberries or raspberries
  • 2 Mcintosh apples sliced
  • 2 cups green grapes
  • 2 oranges juiced (about 1/4 - 1/3 cup)
  • 1 lemon zested


Honey Walnuts

  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Melt butter in a non stick skillet over medium heat.
  • Once melted, stir in honey, cinnamon and salt. Mix until well combined.
  • Stir in California walnuts.
Cook for 5 minutes (it should start lightly simmering), stirring often, until the walnuts are well coated and the honey mixture has started to thicken.
  • Pour walnuts onto the lined baking sheet .
  • Be sure to quickly separate the walnuts using a spatula or spoon.
  • Let cool completely before storing them in an airtight container in the fridge or at room temperature. I prefer storing these in the fridge, then leaving them out at room temperature for a few minutes before serving.
  • Pro tip: if your nuts are really sticking together and not separating after they cool, place them into an airtight container in the fridge for a couple hours, then break them apart.

Fruit Salad

  • Place strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, apples, and grapes together in a large bowl.
  • Toss with orange juice and lemon zest.
  • Serve immediately. Let people scoop their own fruit salad into an individual bowl and top with honey walnuts.
  • See my notes in above post if you’re making this in advance.
