Reviews for Crunchy Apple Side Salad
"Does anyone have an idea what to use instead of Yogurt ? Neither me or my husband can tolerate it. Sounds good. but...."
"My entire family loved this. My daughter made it for us. That made it extra special. I'm going to try it with pecans next time. I loved the cranberries."
"We love this salad! We use what ever apples we have in the fridge and leave out the craisins and add grapes. You can really play around with this! Thanks for a great recipe!"
"Added additional sweetener. My brother-in-law asked to take some home."
"I'm not big on apples and my fiance hates salads, but we both absolutely love this. He begs me to make is constantly."
"So good even my friend's 4-year old called it "delightful". Love the extra flavor from the cinnamon and the fact that there's no mayo."

"i didn't have cranberries, but i had blueberries. This is so delicious i can't believe it's healthy"
"I made this several times and everybody raves about it. I don't like cranberries, so I substitute grapes."
"Light, but filling. I used pecans instead of walnuts. My 3 year old, loved it. Definitely something we'll be making regularly-- its a hit!"
"I have made this recipe many times. I followed the recipe exactly several times & I've also modified it by omiting the whipped topping & using additional yogurt & whatever apples we have on hand. I think it's delicious both ways & has become a new favorite for our lunches!"
"This made a huge hit with my family. The mixed flavors are wonderful, but I did back off a little on the cinnamon. Made it while we were on vacation and it was loved by all."
"I omitted the whipped topping and just added more of the yogurt which wasn't sugar-free just all natural. It was still great and sweet. Even my husband who doesn't care for apples loved it."
