Serving Suggestions


  • Buy walnuts still in their shell from your green grocer and crack them yourself for maximum freshness. Otherwise lightly toast already shelled walnuts in a non-stick frying pan over medium heat to freshen them up.
  • This salad is easy enough for the kids to help you prepare.
  • This salad is an easy side to whip up for a barbeque or picnic. You can keep the dressing separate in a sealed bottle, and then when it comes time to serve shake the bottle vigorously and pour over rice. Easy!
