This salad recipe pairs perfectly with my best
To make the salad, you want to:
- 1st: Make the glazed almonds.
- 2nd: Prepare the salad greens and fruit.
- 3rd: Whip up the fresh salad dressing!
1 cup raw almonds
1/3 cup granulated sugar
(or Whey Low D granular)
First, heat a heavy skillet over high heat, add the almonds. Generously sprinkle the sugar in, stir until the sugar melts.
Caution: The molten sugar is very HOT.
Immediately transfer the glazed almonds onto a Silpat Mat (or a large non-plastic plate). Completely COOL, before gently breaking apart. Reserve.
