Directions

  1. At Home:

  2. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. In a small saucepan heat sugar, cayenne, nutmeg, water, honey and salt over medium-low heat, without stirring, until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and set aside.

  3. In a small bowl, whisk egg white until foamy, add walnuts and gently toss to coat. Transfer nuts to sugar mixture and stir to coat. Arrange nuts in a single layer on prepared baking sheet and bake for 10 min. Let nuts cool completely before storing in an airtight container.

  4. In a reasealable container, combine garlic paste, yogourt, lemon juice and pepper. In a large bowl, toss together kale, romaine, celery and apple. Cover with plastic wrap before transporting.
