Spicy Roasted Pecans:

Fruit Salad:


  1. For the spicy roasted pecans: Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment and coat with cooking spray.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the sugar, cinnamon, salt, cayenne, ginger and egg white. Whisk until foamy. Fold in the pecans until fully incorporated.
  3. Transfer the pecans to the prepared baking sheet in an even layer. Bake until fragrant, about 20 minutes. Let cool.
  4. For the fruit salad: Cut a slit into the habanero. Combine the honey and orange juice in a small saucepot and add the habanero and cinnamon. Heat until just simmering, about 40 seconds. Let stand for 10 minutes, then remove the habanero.
  5. To serve: Toss the cantaloupe, grapes, kiwis and apples with the honey syrup, then coarsely crumble the pecans on top.
