  • 1/2 cup red walnuts
  • 1 tablespoon high quality Olive Oil

Recipe Notes

Hazelnuts may be substituted for the red walnuts. Red walnuts have a short season and are available through Melissa's Produce and Sanguinetti Farms.

I use fresh mozzarella or crumbled goat cheese often because they are low in sodium. Feta or shaved parmesan would also be good.
