Serves 8


A spicy kick makes these 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 ½ tsps garlic salt
  • 1 ½ tsps mixed dried herbs
  • 1 tsp ground cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 2 cups California walnut halves and pieces
  • Directions

    1. Preheat oven to 350F. 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.
