Expert Tips

Cook nuts in ungreased heavy skillet over medium-low heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until browning begins, then stirring constantly until golden brown. Or bake uncovered in ungreased shallow pan in 350° oven about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown.

Using prepared coleslaw mix in this crunchy Asian salad keeps time-consuming vegetable preparation to a minimum.
