"This is my favorite Thanksgiving dish! The sweetness is a nice contrast to the saltiness of the turkey. The walnuts and apples give a nice texture, but make sure they are chopped small enough. The mayo seems like a strange addition, but you don't taste it, and it improves the texture of the cream cheese. Enjoy!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Instead of mayonnaise, I used sour cream. I also used pecans instead of walnuts. At the last minute, I folded in half of a small bag of mini marshmallows. I made no other changes. Instead of letting it set up in a serving bowl, I spread it in a 9x13 baking pan. Once it set, I spread the top with Cool Whip. This is to DIE FOR. We all loved it.
Took this to a Thanksgiving supper at Lodge and everyone raved. Requested again this year.
Of course made at home also. Jackpot. A Keeper.
I can't wait for this to set up all the way! From what I could taste, it is so delicious! And that was without all the combined textures!
