Noix Caramélisées

How to give a little "kick" to your salads

By adding caramelized nuts!

Recently, I had fun experimenting with different ways to "caramelize" my pecans. Maple syrup and honey are always a winner, but what I like is using aBourbon and Maple infused balsamic vinegar!

What happiness in the mouth!

How to make caramelized pecans?

It's very simple. You need a handful of whole pecans, a little butter and a Bourbon and Maple balsamic vinegar.
  1. In a skillet over medium heat, sauté 1/2 cup pecans for 3 minutes or until just starting to toast.
  2. Then add 1 tsp. butter and make sure that the melted butter coats them well.
  3. Add 2 tbsp. Bourbon and Maple balsamic vinegar. Pepper.
  4. Continue to cook the pecans for about 2 minutes, stirring regularly.
  5. When the balsamic vinegar thickens and sticks to the nuts, you can remove from the heat and let the nuts cool.

Serving suggestion

Serve on a spinach and avocado salad with the dressing of your choice, or on a spring mix salad topped with grilled chicken strips.

A true delight !
