Expert Tips

No Calimyrna figs? Any combination of chopped dried fruits (about 1 1/4 cups) will work. You may want to use a 6-ounce package of diced dried fruit and raisins. Chopped pecans or cashews can be used instead of the walnuts.

For 0 fat grams and 30 calories per serving, use fat-free cream cheese and sour cream and decrease walnuts to 2 tablespoons.
