Fantastic! Loved the combination of curry with dried fruits and ginger. Really enjoyed this as a packed lunch. Will definitely make again! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Replaced the golden raisins and apricots with a box of mixed dry fruit, for convenience. Thought it was good. I liked this salad, but picky son prefers 239599.
