"I couldn't ever find the perfect Waldorf salad - one that wasn't too mayonaise-y tasting, yet one that still held enough of the original flavor to be called a Waldorf. So I mixed and matched and experimented, and finally came up with a perfect twist on the classic Waldorf Salad recipe. Now I get requests for it at every family get together!"

Made exactly as written and none of my Thanksgiving guests cared for this. The flavors didn't blend together at all. Very disappointing recipe.

The first time I made this I used cottage cheese (that I pulsed in the blender) instead of yogurt, cause that is what I had on hand. It came out very well, but was a little too sweet for our tas...

I was trying to use up some pears, so I put in plenty of those and skipped the apples. I didn't have dried cranberries so used some dried mixed fruit pieces and also chopped almonds. There was s...
