Broccoli salad with cashew-sweet potato dressing

Right before dinner, my daughter told me she didn't like broccoli anymore.  Then she ate about 2c of this salad and told me it was the best dinner ever. 

About 3 c finely chopped broccoli, including tender stems
3 prunes, minced
3 dried apricots, minced (sulfite-free)
1/4 c cashews
1/4 c boiling water
1 T roasted sweet potato
1 T rice vinegar

Soak cashews in boiling water for at least 10 minutes.  Puree in blender, add sweet potato and vinegar, and blend again.  Mix broccoli and dried fruit, add dressing.  Better if served after a couple hours of refrigeration to allow the broccoli to marinate a bit.
