This diplike Passover dish is delicious on matzo. Or, after the holiday, try it with cheese and crusty bread. This dish was featured as part of our Recipes for Passover photo gallery.

Remove from heat; add reserved date-fig mixture, cinnamon, and orange zest; and stir to combine. Let sit for 10 minutes.
                                                                  • Stir fig mixture into reserved apple-walnut mixture until combined. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve with matzo.
