For a little spice you can substitute or add Dried Chili Mango & Dried Chili Pineapple. Available at Trader Joe's and most Latin Markets.

Background: I love this recipe for its ease and flavor. Serve it warm with pork, or cold with grilled salmon. Play with it and add your favorite dried fruits! xo
