Then whisk the dressing by mixing all of the ingredients.
  • Next combine all the ingredients for the salad in a shallow bowl.
  • Spoon the dressing over the vegetables and fruit and let sit for a while for all the tastes to Incorporate and the raisins to swell up a bit. Or refrigerate the salad if you have started work In the kitchen ahead of serving time.
