Hosting tip

Here’s a tip. When hosting, I always set a small bowl of pecans by the salad, because they are a a delicious snack straight from the bag!

Many think of pecans as a dessert nut, but we love to serve them on salmon, or in quinoa salads, and they are delicious on green salads.

Pecans are the only major tree nut native to North America and are among the highest in “good” monounsaturated fats, and have plant-protein, fiber, flavonoids, and essential minerals.*
