Watermelon & Goat Cheese Salad with Spiced Nuts

This salad is out of this world. Inspired by Against All Grain, it's sweet, fresh and bursts with summer deliciousness. The watermelon is a perfectly sweet contrast to the tangy goat cheese. And with the spiced nuts, it's like a bite of fresh summer air topped with a warm candied treat.

  • First prepare the candied nuts by heating the oil in a small saute pan.
  • Add the honey and heat for 30 seconds.
  • Add the walnuts and spices to the pan and saute until caramelized and golden brown, about 2 – 3 minutes.
  • Set the nuts aside and let them cool while you prepare the rest of the salad.
