Give It Some Crunch

For crunch, add 2 tablespoons toasted chopped nuts per serving. Choose from shelled pistachios, cashews, pecans, or walnuts―but look for unsalted roasted nuts to keep the sodium in check. Or skip the nuts altogether, and add a few crunchy croutons, preferably ones you make yourself from day-old cubed bread in a dry skillet over medium heat. Dot these all around the plates.
