Cook's Note:

Four tips to make it more to your liking: Substitute any fruit with apricots, dried cranberries, or raisins. You can use fat-free mayo, yogurt, or sour cream instead of regular mayo. Use chicken or tuna, or omit the meat for veggie version. You can substitute any nut; most popular is pecans.
