This is my favorite Thanksgiving dish! The sweetness is a nice contrast to the saltiness of the turkey. The walnuts and apples give a nice texture, but make sure they are chopped small enough. The mayo seems like a strange addition, but you don't taste it, and it improves the texture of the cream cheese. Enjoy!

Instead of mayonnaise I used sour cream. I also used pecans instead of walnuts. At the last minute I folded in half of a small bag of mini marshmallows. I made no other changes. Instead of letting it set up in a serving bowl I spread it in a 9x13 baking pan. Once it set I spread the top with Cool Whip. This is to DIE FOR. We all loved it. Read More

It's excellent and I'm often asked to bring it to holiday functions. I leave out the nuts because of allergy issues. Read More

This is the exact recipe I've been looking for. However I don't have cream cheese so I'm going to use cottage cheese. Hope it works as well. Will also add some chopped celery. Love allrecipes - can always find what I'm looking for! Read More
