Made this for Jan and I Sept 7, 2018. We both liked it but I would make some changes. 1) be sure to use golden raisins - I couldn't get them. It would have made a difference. 2) When I made the dressing - following the instructions, I found it watery - so I have made changes to that above changing 3 T cider vinegar to 1 T lemon juice - as many other Waldorf salad recipes suggested. I have added red seedless grapes and changed the nuts from walnuts to pistachios - I just think they will be better. Changed the second kind of apple to red delicious - the thing is the apples need to be really firm/crisp - that makes the salad work better.
THE OTHER GREAT THING ABOUT THIS SALAD IS THAT YOU CAN MAKE IT THE DAY BEFORE - SO IT MAKES PREP GREAT.
Made this again at Osoyoos - everyone loved it.
