      This salad was better after it had time to marinate in the refrigerator.<br/><br/>This time I used the corkscrew pasta, which was a little big to match with the raisins, olives and the walnuts. Next time I'll try the Fusilli.<br/><br/>This is a salad that would really appeal to Greek or Middle Eastern guests.
