These candied walnuts are one of my favorite treats to make my salads very special. In addition, nuts are very good for you. Yes, they add more fat and calories to salads, but they're packed with heart-healthy fats and tons of nutrients (thiamine, phosphorus, zinc, magnesium, manganese, iron, copper, and vitamin E).

For nut trees to produce nuts, you'll need two or more different cultivars, since they require cross-pollination for maximum productivity. Walnut trees don't bear fruit until they are between four and 12 years old and that is determined by the cultivar.
