KRAFT KITCHENS TIPS
Make-Ahead
Dressing can be prepared ahead of time. Cover and refrigerate up to 24 hours.

Special Extra
For extra flavor, toast walnuts before adding to salad. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spread walnuts in single layer on baking sheet. Bake 5 to 7 min. or until lightly toasted.

*To carmelize or sugar the walnuts take a large nonstick skillet and add 1/2 to 3/4 Cup sugar and walnuts on medium high heat.
