  1. In a medium saucepan, combine dry pudding mix and water.
  2. Cook over medium heat until mixture thickens and starts to boil, stirring constantly.
  3. Remove from heat. Stir in vinegar and margarine. Place saucepan on a wire rack and allow to cool completely, stirring occasionally.
  4. In a large bowl, combine apples, celery, raisins, and walnuts.
  5. Add cooled dressing mixture. Mix gently to combine.
  6. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Gently stir again just before serving.
  • To plump up raisins without "cooking," place in a glass measuring cup and microwave on HIGH for 20 seconds.
