How very interesting! I was really impressed with the different dimensions of flavors. Sadly, I didn't have any almonds, but everything else came together really nicely. I loaded up on the black pepper to balance out the sweetness. Served over spinach. Would be a great picnic salad, great for a luncheon, for do as I did and enjoy as a light dinner. Veg Swap Oct '11.
Made this pretty much as given, although I was kind of generous with the raisins, used some mixed greens, & toasted the almonds! Also, although the recipe didn't state one way or the other, I did leave the potatoes unpeeled! All that for a wonderfully tasty salad & a recipe that I'll be keeping around! Thanks for sharing it!
