Steak Cobb Salad

Steak Cobb Salad

I love a good variety salad with different types of toppings. But sometimes I get on a certain salad kick and cannot get off of it!

Grilled Chicken Salad with Candied Walnuts

Grilled Chicken Salad with Candied Walnuts

My husband is a huge nut person. He loves any variation of nuts. About a year ago I tired Santé Nuts for the first time. My favorite thing about this company is that they offer a variety of nuts and candied nuts. I always love adding candied nuts to my salad. I feel like there is hardly any brands that offer candied nuts. When I run out of Santé Nuts I try to make my own and they are fine but they are never perfect. Some are too sweet, some get a little burnt, and some aren’t sweet enough. So …
