The Maple Walnuts:

For this salad you are welcome to leave the walnuts plain, or you can make your own crispy maple walnuts. It’s really simple and adds a nice sweet touch to this salad and it’s as simple as placing walnuts in a sauce pan with butter and a little maple syrup!


Tips for The Dressing:

This lovely, light salad dressing is made with freshly squeezed tangerine juice, lemon zest, olive oil and  raw honey. I use a handheld juicer to squeeze the juice and a microplane to zest the lemon.
