Have made this delish salad plenty a times; love the *crunchiness*. Either leave out sugar or cut way back (type I diabetes); turns out great every time!!

Love, love, love this recipe...I've made it countless times since it was published in Light & Tasty in 2002. A definite keeper!!

This is a fabulous, fresh-tasting salad full of healthy eating! I cook for small meetings as part of my job, and I serve this often. Half or all Splenda can be substituted for the sugar if needed and I prefer Miracle Whip Light because I don't like mayo (nor do I like fat-free mayo or salad dressing). Fat free plain yogurt isn't always available at the smaller grocery where I shop; I have substituted FF vanilla yogurt in this recipe and that works very well. This is definitely a 5-star recipe that doesn't leave you feeling like you got less because it was healthier!
