Raw date and nut salami

No bake salami made with dates, coconut oil, assorted nuts and cranberries. A guilt free Christmas treat.

You can make this lovely nutty salami in advance, wrap it in baking paper and store in the freezer. The salami gets soft at room temperature. It can serve as a really beautiful, hand crafted gift as well.
