This is like one my family has made for a long time but instead of almonds, we use pistachios, roasted pine nuts or walnuts. The almond flavor gets lost in the dressing next to the onions. We use dried cranberries instead of raisins to get an tangy/sweet next to the salty flavors. It also adds a splash of color that is very appealing. Also, we top it with some bacon cooked crunchy in small pieces. We dont usually put this salad together until right before it will be served as the bacon, nuts and fruit have a tendency to get mushy overnight and lose a lot of fun and interesting texture. Try it with cranberries, bacon and a stronger flavored nut and it is perfection. The dressing on this recipe is spot on. If you dont have vinegar, you can use lemon juice and honey also is a wonderful sub. for sugar for smooth flavor.
