|Ina Garten's Rosemary Cashews|
Inspired by the bar nuts served at Union Square Cafe in New York City, these delicious, savory cashews are perfect for holiday entertaining. They are insanely tasty, take under ten minutes to make and can be made the day ahead and kept in an airtight container. They will pique your guests' palates without filling them up and, coincidentally, pair beautifully with a festive glass of Champagne. I must caution you though, they are extremely addictive so only make them when you have a houseful of people coming over so you don't eat them all yourself. Trust me, I speak from experience!
I hope you and your guests enjoy these ever-so tasty Rosemary Cashews and I'd like to wish you all a very Happy and Delicious Holidays!
