Recipe Notes

If you need a quick, portable snack, divide mixture into 1/4 cup servings and place each in a single-serving plastic bag.

Use any combination of nuts you'd like.

Watching sodium? Most of the sodium is coming from the Kosher salt and the cheese. The cheese adds a ton of flavor, so I'd try eliminating the added salt first.
