Last year I started working with Blue Diamond Almonds and feel in more in love with almonds. I made a Lighter Chicken Salad with Sriracha Almonds, Almond Crusted Goat Cheese, Almond Crusted Chicken Tenders, and Salted Caramel Snack Bars. Whatever it is that you add almonds to makes it better. Almonds add such great flavor and texture to both savory and sweet dishes.
