      I made this a while back and LOVED it! Since I'm not a fan of anchovies, I omitted these. Other than this omission I followed the recipe and was completely satisfied! Thanks KelBel for such a wonderful recipe!!

      I thought this was delicious, but in the end, felt there was a bit too much oil. I think if I made it again, I would half the oil to saute the garlic and anchovy. I used the anchovy fillets, but I think I will try using a squirt of anchovy paste next time. I did not use walnuts, but instead only used the pine nuts. I also used sun-dried tomatoes chopped up instead of the raisins and felt that was a good move. Thanks for a great recipe.

      THIS is to-die-for.It's everything advertised; sweet, salty, nutty and spicy. Only change I made was to use dried cranberries rather than raisins.
