Expert Tips

  • Toasting intensifies the flavor of the nuts. To toast them, sprinkle in an ungreased heavy skillet. Cook over medium heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until almonds begin to brown, then stirring constantly until almonds are light brown.
  • Substitute crumbled goat cheese for the feta, if desired.
