I only had one granny smith apple, so that's what I used. Also, used a 6-oz container of Chobani No-Fat Lemon Yogurt which was a delicious dressing for this salad. Many apple salads are loaded with mayo, so the yogurt is a nice deviation. Very nice fruit salad.---------EDIT 9.29.13-----Had this for breakfast today, and it held up very well overnight, did not get runny. Just be sure to drain your mandarin oranges very well.

We had our first luncheon of the year at work today. I work at a school and we take turns (by departments) each month and sponsor a luncheon. I made this and doubled the recipe. Huge hit! Everyone liked it and there was enough left over for me to stop at my parents' house after work and share with them. I used lemon greek yogurt and everyone said they loved the dressing on this. Very nice salad with a Fall twist to it.

I tried the recipe but I didn't have grapes. So instead I put 1 cup of blueberries. I also add another apple, 20oz of mandarin, 1/4 cup of chopped walnuts, 1/4 cup of hemp hearts and increased the lemon yogurt to 1 1/2 cup. My family loved it

I do WW so I left out the marshmallows and used FF lemon yogurt. Very good.

Gave it two stars about two hours after I made it--the lemon flavor is really strong. The next day, though, the lemon had receded, and the flavors had blended perfectly. We finished off the entire bowl for lunch!!

YES, Sunshine...my mother did the same! It was a little different, hers had bananas & cherries, cut in half & she called it Waldorf salad as well! She's in heaven now, but OH those memories so lovely... I made a point of ordering a Waldorf fruit salad @ The Waldorf Hotel in NYC, I was that curious to see how close mama was? It was different, but yummy too, I'm not sure what they used to bring it all together? Now I try to do a healthier spin & all fresh ingredients...apples; pineapple;oranges;plain Greek yogurt; (flavored by me w/vanilla & truvia)a touch of mini-marshmallows;fresh or frozen cherries;I put in fridge long enough for flavors to play nice. Then add nuts & coconut before serving.It's just as tasty, but I think a bit healthy then old school recipes. Thanks for the memory...

This is awesome. I make it at least once a week. We love it for a desert or late night snack. Add a few more fruits, whatever I have at the time. Strawberries, pineapple, blueberries and maraschino cherries for a pop of color. Thanks so much for sharing.

I think my Mom used to make this and it was called a waldorf salad...does anyone else know about that or am I wrong? Only she used mayonaise instead of yougart back then...
