I’ve been making unique salads for about a year now. They’re actually one of the reasons that inspired me to make this blog – an Instagram story series wasn’t enough. It evolved into a database and eventually into a more formal medium aka Hell Yes It’s Vegan.

It’s winter and I’ve moved out of summer caesars and into kale combinations. I made these clove candied walnuts for a salad I will eventually get around to posting, and let me tell you, they’re delicious!

Baking these can be a little temperamental so I definitely recommend keeping an eye on them as they can burn quickly. The good news is that aside from accidental burning, they’re super easy to make.

All you need to make clove candied walnuts are some walnuts (shocker!), vegan butter, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and ground cloves. That’s it! Prepping is easy as well. Melt the butter and whisk with the syrup, vanilla, and cloves and then mix with the walnuts. Lastly, you bake them.

If you’re looking for something super sweet, these clove candied walnuts are not it. There is definitely sweetness present from the maple syrup, but it’s not overpowering at all. The cloves also provide a bitter element adding complexity.

You can eat these clove candied walnuts plain, toss them on top of a salad for sweetness and texture, or serve them in a charcuterie board with other nuts, fruits, veggies, and vegan cheeses.

I also really like adding a little bit of sea salt to these after they cool. The salt brings out the sweetness of the syrup, but beware! It also makes them highly addictive.
