Packed with many vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin E, slivered raw almonds are a delicious nut choice. Used mainly in a variety of recipes, slivered almonds are unique in appearance. Unlike raw almonds, these nuts are sliced very thinly, creating a stick-like appearance. Because slivered almonds are white in color, they are a good choice for savory dishes and desserts in which appearances are essential. Besides their sleek look, slivered almonds add a sweet taste and extra crunch with every bite.
