In Greece, we love nuts! Little nut shops abound where, not coincidentally, dried fruits are also sold. The combination of dried fruits and nuts is a Greek favorite, and while there are many wonderful Greek dishes to serve at a party, these should not be overlooked.
Little dishes with nuts – mixed or one type – and dried fruits are always appropriate, and you might want to try these delicious combinations:
- Dried apricots and almonds: Stuff each apricot with a whole almond.
- Dried figs with walnuts: Stuff each fig with a whole walnut.
- Prunes with walnuts: Stuff each prune with a whole walnut.
- Sultana raisins and nuts: Combine equal parts of whole walnuts (my favorite) or hazelnuts with sultana (golden seedless) raisins and serve in bowls.
