Juicy oranges, crunchy almonds, smooth and luscious dates...and with a cinnamon/orange "dressing" over all, this fruit salad is beyond delicious.

Great recipe. Very different. I doubled the amount of dates because I love them and, reduced the OJ as per a previous recommendation and went without the powdered sugar.

I really liked this too - made exactly as written except that I used a little agave instead of sugar. 1 cup of OJ was quite a bit though, there was far too much time I'll half that. Thanks Messy Cook!

I made this with Moroccan lamb (19984) and it was a great addition. I used clementines. I agree, I should have added more dates. I forgot to add the almonds, but it was still fantastic. My whole family (husband, 6 yr old, 4 yr old, and 1 yr old) couldn't get enough. So easy to prepare, will make this again!
