Coffee Table Munchies

Just a quick idea for a healthy coffee table snack. Begin with one kind or a variety of shelled or un-shelled nuts such as walnuts, hazelnuts or pistachios.  Add an assortment of dried fruit such as cranberries, apples, apricots, banana chips and mango. Depending on how large your platter and the people who will be around, you may like to throw in some pretzels or candy. I like the look of star anise and cinnamon sticks in the mix, just for looks of course. And that's it for today. Enjoy!


  1. That looks so festive! A great idea for a healthy "potpourri" snack.

  2. What a beautiful and healthy idea! This reminds me of the bowl of nuts that was a treat at my grandparents' home years ago. Thanks!
