DRIED FRUIT & NUT SALAD

BOOKMARK

DELICIOUS

Description

I have a large selection of dried fruits and nuts in my pantry at all times. I just adore them.

I love the combination of fresh fruit, chewy sweet dried fruit and crunchy nuts in my salads. I’d say, I probably make a version of this salad 3 nights a week.

I mix it up, using whatever fresh fruit is in season. I add dried mangos, apricots, candied orange peel, dates or peaches. And I switch out the nuts and use brazils, cashews, almonds, pine nuts, pecans or candied ones.

So go ahead and create your own version and don’t forget to share it with me
