For a change of pace, I toss together this crisp, colorful dish in place of an ordinary green salad. Folks have commented on the interesting mix of crunchy nuts, apples and veggies and the tangy honey-yogurt dressing.

"This salad has a wonderful texture and flavor, is easy to make, and looks beautiful. I used orange creme flavored yogurt for the dressing and was very pleased. I did want to leave a word of caution - I made this ahead of time, thinking that it would be okay to sit in the fridge for a few hours. For some reason, it wasn't. I don't know if it was because I used non-fat yogurt, but the dressing did not hold together at all. Several hours later, I had a pile of fruit sitting in a puddle of liquid. I will definitely make this again, but when I do, I'll cut the fruit ahead of time (I gave the apple chunks a quick bath in the juice from the mandarin oranges; this prevents them from browning,) mix the dressing separately, then mix it up just before serving. But still, I ate a bit of the salad when I first made it, and it's definitely a keeper. Just not for making ahead."
