Total Time:20 minutes
Yield:6 servings 1x
1 Tbsp unsalted butter
1 cup California Walnuts
2 Tbsp granulated sugar
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1 cup full-fat, plain Greek yogurt
1 lime, zested & juiced
1 Tbsp honey
1 grapefruit, segmented
2 medium oranges, segmented
1 sprig of fresh mint, stem removed
flaky sea salt
Line a sheet pan with parchment paper and set aside.
Warm a skillet over medium heat and add butter. Once butter is melted and foamy, add walnuts, sugar and cayenne pepper and stir to combine. Cook for about 4-5 minutes, stirring often, until sugar mixture melts and begins to coat the nuts. Remove from heat and immediately spread the nuts onto sheet pan in a single layer to let cool and harden.
Meanwhile, add yogurt through honey to a medium bowl and whisk until well-combined. Fold in the cooled walnuts, reserving 1-2 Tbsp for garnish.
Spread the yogurt/walnut mixture on a serving platter. Scatter citrus segments on top the yogurt, followed by the remaining walnuts, mint leaves, and a pinch of flaky salt.
Feel free to use whatever fruit you have on hand. Any sort of citrus works well, but you could also use kiwifruit, mango, berries or melon.
