Very versatile fruit dish that's easy to prepare. My favourite dried fruits to use are raisins and dried apricots.

I made this yesterday and refrigerated it. For the dried fruit I used crytallized ginger and papaya mixed and omitted the fresh ginger Lovely flavor combination. I served it with a bit of vanilla yogurt. This would be wonderful as a dessert
