Reviews for Carrot Apple Salad
"Both my husband and I enjoyed this salad. I do not like mayonnaise so I added extra yogurt."
"Refreshing. Great for a potluck item."
"I make this all the time. My mom found it first in L&T, and passed the recipe to me. Fantastic. Tips: be sure to drain the pineapple well; I use 2/3 cup of other yogurt, such as lemon, orange, etc. in place of the vanilla and plain. Makes it extra special."
"Very Tasty. I replaced the mayo with FF Ranch Dressing. I didn't have vanilla yogurt so I used plain yogurt and added vanilla extract and splenda to sweeten it."
"This is an excellent salad and not what you would expect. It is one of our favorite recipes!"
