How to Toast Nuts
Toasting nuts adds crunch and intensifies their flavor. MICROWAVE METHOD: Place up to 1 cup of nuts in a shallow microwaveable dish. Microwave on HIGH until fragrant and crisp, stirring every 30 sec. STOVETOP METHOD: Place nuts in ungreased skillet. Cook on medium heat until golden brown, stirring frequently. OVEN METHOD: Spread nuts in single layer in a shallow baking pan. Bake at 350°F for 8 to 10 min. or until golden brown, stirring occasionally.
If you don't love the peppery flavor of the arugula, you can substitute 1-1/2 cups tightly packed fresh spinach leaves for the arugula.
