I didn't have yogurt so I used sour cream. It was verrrrrry goooooood. My kids are asking when I will make it again. Thanks!

It wasn't bad but I don't think adding the yogurt made it that much better than just using mayo.

I have made this salad about 5 times so far, I love it, it is simple and tastes great. I use sour cream instead of yogurt. Thanks so much!!

My daughter needed to bring a salad to a potluck. We were low on ingredients to add to the salad. I came across this recipe and modified it somewhat. Instead of turkey she used ham. And she took a chance using vanilla yogurt instead of plain. The salad was a hit. The sweetness of the yogurt went well with the ham. Tomatoes were also added. Thanks for the recipe.

I used half sour cream/half mayo instead, this one is easy and very good, thanks!!

I make this with the mayo/yogurt combo and LOVE it. I use Nancy's Organic Plain Honey Yogurt. YUM!!! It gives it a "fresh" taste. For vegitarians, just substitute Turkey for veggies: Bell Pepper, broccoli, peas...Its really pretty with orange/red/green bell peppers

Delicious!! I used a smoked turkey leg (which I diced), Wacky Mac spiral noodles, yellow onion, light mayo, and light sour cream instead of yogurt. I'm sure I'll make this again and often. Thanks for the great recipe!
