How to make Candied Pine Nut Crusted Brie Salad


Salad

1.  In a small sauce pan, heat butter until it melts , then toss in pine nuts.  Add brown sugar, cumin, cayenne and salt and stir to combine.

2.  Once brown sugar has melted and nuts are fully coated, slide onto a wax paper lined baking sheet and place in the freezer to cool.

3.  Once nuts have cooled, dump them into a food processor and chop until they form small crumbles.  Pour onto a small plate.

4.  Slice brie into four pieces* and press two sides of the cheese into the nuts, coating both sides completely.

5.  Heat a swirl of olive oil in a pan.  When hot, add the cheese, cooking both sides just until almost browned.  (Brie melts quickly, so don’t leave it in the pan long.  A few seconds on each side should do.)


Dressing
