Wonderful recipe adapted from Food & Wine, May 2008 edition. Original recipe called for making a dressing with 2 cups of walnut halves and a ton of oil and it was WAY too heavy and had WAY too many calories. I lighted it up and now we think it's perfect!!! This is a great make ahead salad and is perfect for the Christmas holiday (being red and green)!
