This is a much lighter version of a Waldorf Salad with no mayo. The flavours of the apples, walnuts and raisins are so clean and fresh.
Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4 and spread the walnuts out on a baking tray. Bake for 10 minutes or until fragrant.
This was surprisingly good despite my initial skepticism. A good quality walnut oil is a must. Don't substitute! - 21 Jul 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Oh, man! This is delicious. I tried it tonight to prepare for tomorrow's Thanksgiving meal and I ate the whole test batch. I used Gala apples in place of the Red Delicious and dried cranberries in place of the raisins. It is a perfect salad for a holiday meal. I can't wait to serve it to my guests tomorrow. The walnut oil really makes it special. - 22 Nov 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
A nice crunchy side dish and great alternative to a mayo-based salad. I served this for a casual mid-September cook-out of hamburgers and hotdogs. Those that tried it really liked it. I used a medley of granny smith, braeburn, red delicious, and gala. I also used half dark raisins and half golden raisins. The best part for me is the toasted walnuts and walnut vinaigrette. AND, the salad stays good and crunchy as leftovers. - 17 Sep 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
