Chili-Lime Cashews


It's a bright idea to add citrus to the classic party pairing of cool drinks, such as our Orange-Rum Punch, and crunchy nuts.


  • 2 ½ teaspoons coarse salt

  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lime zest

  • 2 tablespoons dark-brown sugar

  • ½ teaspoon red-pepper flakes

  • 1 large egg white

  • 3 cups raw unsalted cashews


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, using the back of a wooden spoon, grind salt with lime zest. Add dark-brown sugar, red-pepper flakes, and egg white and whisk together until frothy. Add cashews and toss to coat.

  2. Spread cashew mixture in a single layer onto a parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet. Bake until golden, 20 minutes. Let cool completely.
