Easy Summer Salad with Candied Walnuts

SUMMER IS COMING ☀️ Today was bright, sunny and warm! I was craving a fun summer salad! (I also saw an ad online for candied walnuts and decided I was going to make my own) 👌🏼

Ingredients (walnuts):

1/2 cup walnuts
2 tbsp maple syrup (I used a light sugar option)
1 shake cinnamon
1 small splash vanilla extract

Ingredients (salad):

3 cups shredded spinach
1/4 cup candied walnuts
1/2 cup sliced strawberries
1/8 cup crumbled feta cheese (Not pictured: I decided to add 1 Italian sausage for some added protein)


1. Add all ingredients to a greased sauté pan on medium heat
2. Stir with spatula until mixture begins to thicken
3. Let nuts cool
4. Add to salad, enjoy them on their own, or eat them anyway you would like!! ☺️
