Creamy Crunch Mustard, Garlic Chip, and Walnut Salad Topper

Mustard Garlic Walnut Salad Topping being cooked

Ingredients

  • 1 clove (12-15 g) garlic, thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp (25 ml) extra virgin olive oil, or your favourite oil
  • 3 oz (75 g) walnut halves
  • 1 1/2 tbsp (20 ml) Queen Mary Creamy Crunch Mustard
  • salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Method

In a small sauté pan, heat oil on medium heat. Add thinly sliced garlic and brown for about 1 minute or until it's golden in colour. Remove garlic from oil and set aside.

In the same pan, add walnut halves and cook for 1 minute, until the walnut changes, becoming fragrant. Stir constantly for the 1 minute to avoid burning.

Add Creamy Crunch Mustard and cook until the mustard evenly coats the walnut halves, about 1 minute. Remove from heat and mix in the garlic. Season with salt and pepper. Allow to cool slightly.

Use to garnish salad and cooked leafy greens.

Keeps for up to 2 weeks if refrigerated.
Bring back to room temperature before using.
