Jyoti's Tasty Tip:
This recipe was meant to be a salad,
until a customer of ours ordered 6 pounds to serve as a side dish.
Um…mm… that’s smart. Warm it up and you have a side dish. It not only
looks pretty because of the dried fruits but it tastes good, too
Remember, it's all about the taste! Chef Jyoti
