      This was easy and pretty good, a definite change of pace for us. I made it as written. Next time I will omit the mint (I liked the freshness it added but not everyone else did) and add more apricots possibly more nuts. The parents were over and they didn't really love it but myself, dh and two toddlers did love it!

      Loved the combo of the 2 title ingredients, & the recipe was easy enough to prepare, too! I was generous with the amount of both the dried apricots & the pinch of lemon zest (a rather large pinch)! Will certainly be making this one again! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
