- you can prepare the sprouts in the morning/afternoon for dinner time as long as they are stored in an airtight container in the fridge
- candied walnuts will keep for up to 2 weeks in an airtight container so why not make a double batch!
- you can substitute chicken thighs, whole chicken or even serve the salad full vegetarian
