      I loved this salad! It was easy to make, healthy and hearty. Plus it would transport easily. Strangely, I liked it best when it was freshly made, the nuts were crunchier and the lemon tartness came through better. After being covered overnight, the tang from the sauce sort of disappeared. So if I were making the salad ahead, I might wait to add the lemon and nuts until just before serving.

      What a very tasty dish. The lemon, almonds and dill worked it! I didn't have cukes so I used good old zuchini, and I didn't have any raisins. I loved it. I'm sure it'll be my anytime of day eats. Bravo!
