I have to say that the Zucchini Cookies I made a couple of weeks a go with whole wheat flour were pretty good. I added walnuts and raisins along with the zucchini. I don't care for walnuts as much as I do pecans but they would be a waste in a cookie like this. Walnuts are cheaper and a good way to increase your protein, fiber and omega-3's. They are good in hot cereal, salads, and baked goods. As for them alone, they are not my favorite nut. I like cashews, peanuts, pecans and almonds.

Walnuts in a salad are good.  Sometimes I candy them and add to a salad of arugula, sliced strawberries or pomegranate seeds, sliced peppers, crumbled soft goat cheese dressed with a vinaigrette of balsamic vinegar, olive oil, dijon mustard and a dab of honey.  My absolute favorite salad!

Of course there is always baklava!!

Apples just seem to go with walnuts, for some reason.

Apple salad with walnuts, unfortunately the dressing for this salad being whipped cream does not exactly make it the healthiest recipe around.  

Saltines with grated cheddar on them and walnuts sprinkled on top, grilled under the broiler for a few minutes.  Again, these are reeking of health, yes?  But my son (aged 3, so he does not have arterial disease yet) loves them, and they really are delicious.  

Chocolate coconut chewies (the bars you make with a graham cracker crust, walnuts, chocolate chips, and coconut flakes, held together by sweetened condensed milk and baked, then cut into bars) are the world's best.  Also the highest calorie cookie I know how to make.  Possibly deep-fried Snickers bars would top it, but not by much.

Swampy makes a cilantro pesto with walnuts. It works out well.

Yogurt is a good substitute for whipped cream or mayonnaise in apple/Waldorf salad.
