Toasted walnuts tossed with an addictive mixture of spices.
For the cashew version, use the same amount of roasted and lightly salted cashews, but omit the salt from the spice mixture. Since the cashews are already roasted, you'll only need to bake them for about 8 minutes at 350F or just until they brown. For extra heat, sprinkle with red pepper flakes. You may want to add a pinch or two of extra sea salt was well. Raw cashews might also work, but I only tested with roasted & salted.
The original recipe is from one of my favorite places in CT, Stew Leonard's
