A spicy kick makes these spiced walnuts a perfect pre-dinner nibble with drinks. Prepare them a day ahead if you can, as the flavors blend and mellow overnight.

  • 1 egg white
  • 1 1/2 tsps garlic salt
  • 1 1/2 tsps mixed dried herbs
  • 1 tsp ground cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 2 cups California walnut halves and pieces
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a large, shallow baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, mix egg white, garlic salt, dried herbs, cayenne pepper and paprika with a whisk or fork until blended.
  3. Add California walnut halves and pieces and toss until they are evenly coated, then spread in the prepared baking pan. Bake 16-18 minutes, stirring once after about 8 minutes, until the walnuts look dry and toasted. Remove from the oven and cool completely.
  4. Store in an airtight container. Makes 2 cups.
