A gorgeous looking and gorgeous tasting salad. Allow your guests to dress it themselves with the salad dressing served separately. You can make it the morning of, and refrigerate covered until the evening. Try it with dried cranberries instead of raisins for a bit more zing.
4 oz (120g) whole shelled walnuts = 1 cup; use 1/2 cup (2 oz / 60g) for the dressing 2/3 cup raisins = 4 oz / 115g. Feel free to be more generous. Dried cranberries are also amazing in this, particularly at Christmas time. (In the picture, we used dried cranberries.) Allow yourself a large bowl for tossing, then serve in another smaller bowl if you wish.
