Fruit and Nut Salad with Mixed Greens and Pickled Raisins

By Pete Evans From Moveable Feast Season 3, Ep.12
Scott Phillips

Servings: 8


  • 1/3 cup white balsamic vinegar
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 2 dried bay leaves
  • 1 Tbs. yellow mustard seeds
  • 2 tsp. honey
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 12 cups (8 oz.) mixed greens, such as arugula, spinach, and mustard greens
  • 2 fresh apricots (or 4 dried), thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup walnuts, toasted and coarsely chopped
  • 1/3 cup sliced almonds, toasted
  • 1/3 cup sunflower seeds, toasted


  • In a 2-quart saucepan, combine the vinegar, 1/4 cup water, thyme, bay leaves, mustard seeds, honey, 1 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. pepper. Bring to a boil, remove from the heat, and add the raisins. Let plump for 5 minutes. Slowly drizzle in the oil, whisking continuously, until the mixture is emulsified. Adjust the seasoning if necessary. Set aside.
  • Put the greens, apricots, walnuts, almonds, and sunflower seeds in a large bowl. Add enough of the dressing to just coat and toss to combine. Adjust the seasoning and serve with the remaining dressing on the side.
