Toasted nuts, dried fruit and cubes of Parmigiano-Reggiano combine for a fantastic party appetizer or even as fuel for a long hike.

Ingredients:

1 cup almonds
1 cup hazelnuts
5 ounces Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, cut into 1/2-inch cubes (about 1 cup)
1/2 cup dried apricots, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup dried figs, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup prunes, coarsely chopped

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spread almonds on a large rimmed baking sheet and toast until crisp and golden, 10 to 12 minutes. Meanwhile, spread hazelnuts on a separate large rimmed baking sheet and toast until golden, 10 to 12 minutes. Wrap hazelnuts in a clean dish towel and rub them together to remove skins. Set nuts aside until cool enough to handle.
  2. In a large bowl, combine almonds, hazelnuts, cheese, apricots, figs and prunes and toss. Keep at room temperature in a cool, dark place for up to 3 days or refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
