I love this recipe . . .it is simple, simple, simple and, for that reason, good for Thanksgiving. For a "little something extra" -- add honey and fresh lemon juice to taste. Zips it right up and transforms simple yogurt into a "dressing". Toasting the nuts adds an additional dimension as well. Read More

I made this for Thanksgiving and it was just OK. It wasn't very exciting. I like all the ingredients but it didn't do it for the group. I probably won't make it again. Read More

It's quite spectacular for how simple it is. It's a very easy salad. For a little variation, I added chopped dates, and switched the almonds out for hazelnuts or pecans. I also use Pink Lady apples with it because they are still tart, but a bit sweeter - they are perfect for this salad. I enjoy how simple it is and you can always do small variations by changing an ingredient or two by just a little bit. Read More

Fantastic! A fruit salad without cool whip, cream cheese or mayo! I love this salad Rachel. Very tasty and unique with the sweet and tart going on. I, of course, added celery. But even without my tasty little stalks, this salad was great. LOL. Thanks for sharing. Read More

I omitted the cherries because I don't like them and decreased the almonds to the amount I had on hand. It was still absolutely delicious. I can't make this too often because I doubt my ability to refrain from eating the whole bowl. Read More

I have served this salad twice now to rave reviews. The smoothness of the yogurt nicely offsets the tartness of the apples. I added both raisins and dried cranberries and left out the slivered almonds because my kids aren't crazy about them. Great with barbequed ribs! Read More

What a great recipe to go with Chili or Beef Stew for an autumn supper! I used a honey Greek yogurt which is much creamier and thicker than a standard yogurt and added a drop of vanilla oil and a squirt of honey. I used 3 Jonathan apples and 1 Granny Smith. This was fabulous and even better two days later. I also added some lemon juice so the apples wouldn't turn brown. 07/08/11 I have made this numerous times since I first reviewed in fall 2010. This is a great recipe. I recently made for 4th of July picnic using 4 different kinds of apples (Granny Smith Pink Cripps Pink Lady and Fuji). I doubled the recipe for a large group and added vanilla to the plain Greek yogurt as I suggested in my first review. So many compliments and there was no leftovers to take home. I think the name Autumn Apple Salad is misleading as this recipe transcends the seasons. Another reviewer stated that dried fruit is too expensive. Yes it is but small amounts are called for and really make this dish sing. Especially the dried cherries. Try some honey too as I think that also adds to the flavor immensely. Read More
