Easy to make but a luxurious and unexpected bar snack, that's these saffron almonds.


  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • ¼ teaspoon saffron threads

  • 1 ½ cups blanched almonds

  • Kosher salt


  1. Heat oil and saffron in a small skillet over medium. When oil shimmers, add almonds and cook, stirring frequently, until golden brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a bowl; season with salt. Let cool completely. Serve immediately, or store in an airtight container at room temperature up to 1 week.
