Warm Dry Fruit And Nut Salad

Written By Srimathi Mani on Sunday, June 10, 2012 | 11:17 PM


A very nice simple and healthy addition to any type of meal is dry fruit salad. There are many versions to this dry fruit salad and they are common in the middle eastern cuisine. The salad can be made either by soaking the nuts preferably for a few hours or over night. These soaked nuts and dry fruits are toasted and served. It can be served warm as a side dish to add a sweet and nutty taste to our meal or can be served as a dessert with yogurt, whipped cream, ice cream or cottage cheese. The aroma emitted from this blend of fruits and nuts made the whole house smell very aromatic. A must try recipe and one of my favorite salad.
