The theme for me this week has been to keep it simple. I’d been thinking about experimenting with trail mixes, especially as a prelude to spring and summer hiking, because despite the days and days and days (and days) of rain, I know spring has to be somewhere around the corner, right? I saw the combination of cranberries and wasabi peas somewhere recently, and thought I’d give it a try. I wanted a bit more sweet than salty, and the apricots fit the bill. This is a great snack to parcel out into snack bags and keep handy in the desk drawer or school bag.
Sweet and Salty Trail Mix
1 cup sweetened dried cranberries
1 cup dried apricots, cut into halves
1/4 cup wasabi peas
