This was surprisingly good despite my initial skepticism. A good quality walnut oil is a must. Don't substitute!

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.


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.
