  • 3/4 cup golden raisins or regular raisins
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 pounds Opal® Apples or other apple such as Granny Smith, peeled, cored, and cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 3 celery ribs finely chopped
  • 3/4 cup walnuts toasted
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper


  • In a small microwave-safe bowl, combine raisins and water. Cover and microwave until the water boils, about 1 minute.
  • Remove from microwave and let stand until the raisins are plump and most of the water has been absorbed, about 5 minutes. Drain any remaining water.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, vinegar, and honey. Add apples, celery, walnuts, and drained raisins and toss to coat. 
  • Cover and refrigerate at least 30 minutes or up to 2 days in advance. Season to taste with salt and pepper before serving. The Opal® Apples will not turn brown when cut.
