This recipe is always made for every holiday get together. A friend of mine backed away from this for 18 years, because she wasn't too fond of salty sweet treats. A few years ago I convinced her to give it a try. One bite and she was hooked! She absolutely loved all the goodness of the fruity, creamy, lightly salty taste, plus the crunchiness. Now she looks forward to enjoying this dish on the holidays. (Sometimes begging for it before the holidays even get here.)
