      Wow, have I found a great treat for the holidays and just for snacking! This dish is so easy and the results are absolutely wonderful. This recipe will be made again and again and I hope to give it as a gift to friends and family during the holidays! Made for Spring PAC, March, 2013.

      These were terrific. I'd recently read that walnuts are one of the few plants loaded with Omega-3s, so I decided to start throwing 'em into salads. I was making a spinach salad with an orange vinaigrette, and thought this would be the perfect finishing touch -- and it was! The orange flavor was distinct, but not overwhelming; the sweetness was a lovely side note, but it wasn't like eating candy. I tweaked the recipe slightly by cutting back on the sugar (just a tablespoon or two), and by adding orange zest along with the orange juice. I'll make these again and again. Thanks so much for posting this!
