"Apples, walnuts, and cranberries in a creamy sauce make an excellent side dish for Thanksgiving or Christmas dinners!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 (8 ounce) package
cream cheese, softened
1 (6 ounce) container
nonfat plain yogurt
apples - peeled, cored and chopped
1 1/2 cups
I substituted Splenda Brown Sugar and non-fat yogurt. I made it for an office party and everyone raved about it and wanted the recipe.
Dressing has a great taste but it makes the apples look like they are brown and makes the salad look awful. Not a pretty salad.
Presentation is a little lacking- truthfully the sauce looks slimy and brown, but the taste is great. Once I convinced my family to try it, they came back for seconds; said it tasted like unbaked apple pie. If I were to try again: less sauce, little more cranberries.
This is SO good. I had two small bowls this morning with my pumpkin muffins. Even my kids asked for seconds. I didn't sprinkle extra nuts on the top, but I left everything else the same. This will most definetely be made again, perhaps on Christmas morning! WTG, Shana!
I have spent hours looking for recipes for Christmas dinner for the family and a Christmas party. I decided on this one, but wanted to try it first. So I whipped up a batch for a side to my husbands birthday dinner tonight. The outcome...this is defiantly a recipe that will be made for the Christmas party! We are in love with it. I did take some of the other comments into consideration and here are the only things I changed;
Vanilla Greek yogurt (to be honest I am not a fan of Greek yogurt, but wanted it thick)
Slenda brown sugar
mixed pecans and walnuts
mixed cherries and cranberries (both dried)
Next time I will add Grapples with the apples to add some grape flavor as well
Other then that its a wonderful recipe, and my husband has said that when I make it for the party he better be gone or I better make an extra batch (to which I already have to quadruple it)
Thanks for the starter idea, I will be building on this one
A really wonderful option for a winter salad. It's pretty sweet but the mixture of brown sugar and cinnamon with the apples is just perfect. We served it at a casual lunch with friends and it was really well received!
This is delicious! Used half green apples and half red apples and did not peel them. I used plain greek yogurt for a thicker texture and about 1.5c craisins (sprinkled some on top along with the extra walnuts). It turned out great (not watery at all) and it was a big hit!
Fantastic recipe!!! The only changes I made were that I also used dried cherries with the cranberries and I used vanilla greek yogurt (less runny and higher protein content) instead of plain. I made this for a potluck and everyone raved about it!
