Made this as part of PAC. Was a little worried about the Cinnamon Strawberry combination, but it turned great. I used chunky applesauce and it gave the salad a nice texture. Great tasteing and will make again. Edited 9/27/06: Originally gave 4 stars. Made again with regular applesauce. Much improved flavor over the chunky applesauce version. 5 stars
