When I was a kid, a bowl of mixed nuts on the table during the holiday season meant company was coming over. To embellish on that tradition, I like to serve cashews dressed up with a little extra spice and some dried cranberries. They make a perfect nibbly for entertaining or a thoughtful hostess gift.
Try this recipe with a selection of nuts such as almonds, pecans and peanuts. Add pieces of dried apricot, mango and pineapple for variety.
