Moroccan Orange Salad with Pistachios, Dates, and Almonds

This is a very simple salad, yet it is wonderfully refreshing.  It is Moroccan inspired and is adapted from the book Around the World in 450 Recipes by Hermes House Publishing.  


Ingredients:

3 oranges, peeled and sliced 
1/4 cup of pistachios, slightly chopped
1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted
4-5 Medjool dates, pitted and chopped
Powered sugar to taste
a couple of dashes of Cinnamon

Peel the oranges and remove the pith and cut into segments. Chop the dates and pistachios then add to the salad. Sprinkle with a little powered sugar. Mix well. Chill for an hour.  Just before serving, sprinkle with additional powdered sugar and cinnamon. Serves about 4.  Enjoy!

Cooks Note:  You can add orange blossom water and rosewater if you like the taste.  You can also add lemon juice.
