While I haven’t blogged in months, it never leaves my mind. Summer has been busy with road trips and vacations to tropical islands!

I’ve been wanting to caramelize nuts lately, but wanted to do something different. I was thinking balsamic flavor would be amazing. So, why not add balsamic to some sugar? This nut mix is awesome. I plan to serve it with a beet and goat chèvre salad!

Ingredients

– 1/2 c sugar

– 2 Tbls canola oil

– 2 Tbls balsamic (I used a mix of original and garlic flavored)

– 2 c nuts

– salt and pepper, to taste

1. In a pan, heat the sugar, oil and vinegar. When this begins to bubble, add the nuts

2. Cook the nuts for several minutes. Transfer to a cookie sheet lined with parchment. Season with salt and pepper. Let cool!
