  • 2 Tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp fresh parsley chopped
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp dry mustard
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper


  1. Make the sugared almonds first by heating about 1/2 cup slivered almonds under medium heat in about 3 Tbsp sugar, stirring constantly. As soon as they start to tan, remove from heat. Lay out on aluminum foil until cooled.
