What I liked the most about this salad was the cutting of calories with the yogurt and you don't miss any flavor. In fact I used more lemon juice after tasting because I like it so much. I didn't have any grapes so subbed raisins (after all I was using dried cranberries anyway.) Still very good. So easy to make your own way. Next time I will add a little celery...I added celery seed but still wanted a bit of celery. Also I used the Rotisserie chicken made from this site. Thanks for the great recipe! Read More

Except for the onion I followed the recipe to the letter. Vanilla yogurt in my opinion does not work - way too sweet - just didn't taste like it belonged to me. Read More

This was absolutely delicious. The only thing I would suggest to make it better is to prepare it the day before eating it so that the flavors can blend together. It was good the first day but awesome the second and third day. I added a few more nuts to add a little more crunch. Read More

It's great. I definitely suggest that you make it a couple of days ahead. I made it one day ahead but leftovers got better for the next 2 days...Flavor just gets better. Read More

Had to make a few substitutions. Used green onions because the husband hates red used a gala apple because that's what I had. Didn't have yogurt so used 4tbsp of lemon juice whisked it with 1/2 cup mayo. We decided that was perfect. We added a little lemon pepper thought it definitely needed a little seasoning. Yummy. Will definitely make this again. Read More
