This is a nice, savory change from coleslaw. My family really enjoyed it with pork chops. I varied the method for caramelizing the walnuts, as I over cooked them in the oil/butter the first time I made the recipe. The option I used the second time I made the salad was to heat 1 cup walnuts halves, pinch of salt and 5 Tbsp pure maple syrup in a dry skillet over medium heat until walnuts caramelize. Stir frequently for 3 minutes. Cool on parchment paper. Break up into smaller clusters as needed. This salad will go into the rotation this summer and fall. Thanks.
