This slightly sweet salad makes a very pretty presentation. Use plump and moist dried apricots, not hard and desiccated ones. Use soy yogurt to make this dish vegan.

Good with a few changes. Use a full cup apricots, and slivered blanched almonds. Increase turmeric to 1 teaspoon and the cinnamon to a heaping teaspoon. The heaping teaspoon of cinnamon gives a nice warmth to the salad, last but not least make sure to serve a room temp right after making. Flavors get more mellow after chilling or aging.

This just didnt have a lot of flavor. I like all the ingredients so I may make it again adding more spices to increase the flavor.
