    yes, yes, and yes with the salt. Especially with white chocolate which is so sweet. The fruit/nut mix I got is unsalted so I will toss it in the oven for a few minutes with a little sea salt.

    Should the nuts be unsalted? I note the recipe states roasted, but mentions nothing of salt. With the current emphasis on the sweet/salty combo and the use of French salt on chocolates, would salted nuts be a good choice? Anyone have any opinion on this? Thanks.
