Honey roasted walnuts

Homemade honey roasted walnuts

I made these easy honey roasted walnuts to use a crunchy topping for this spinach raspberry salad. I was looking for something slightly different than the standard candied walnuts so I used honey and some chili powder.  These homemade roasted walnuts are also great in other salads or simply served as a snack.
