As the weather gets hotter, we’re not much into turning the oven on for toasting a few nuts. No problem here–these caramelized crunchy peppery pecans are pan roasted, stovetop. Just stir the nuts around in a hot heavy-bottomed skillet with maple syrup, a bit of coconut oil, and plenty of freshly ground black pepper. They toast up beautifully!

While the nuts cool into their crunchiness, whisk up a light tangy-sweet dressing out of sherry vinegar, maple syrup, a titch of Dijon mustard, and extra virgin olive oil. The sherry vinegar’s robust almost-caramel toasted nut flavor accents the peppery arugula, sweet mandarins, and oh—those pecans!
