Iced-Fruit Salad (Chozhaffe)

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Bayhill

Posted for the Zaar World Tour 2006-Syria. From "The Best of International Cooking" cookbook. Even though the title says that this is a salad, it is actually a dessert. If you prefer a less sweet dessert, add the juice of one lemon. I haven't made this recipe, but I love dried fruit and nuts and this sounds delicious. Note: prep time does NOT include refrigeration time, so be sure to allow extra time for required refrigeration.

I made a half-batch of this and it is pretty wonderful stuff. I didn't stir in ice cubes to serve this, but stirred in some greek yoghurt instead for a different, but delicious treat. The rose water makes this extra-special. Thanks!
