This recipe is from a Cincinnatti cookbook "I'll Cook When Pigs Fly". I received this cookbook in the cookbook swap. This salad has a very unusual and unique flavor. You may want to adjust the amount of yogurt depending on your preferences as I find using 3 cups of yogurt makes for a very runny sauce. I also removed the peanuts from the ingredients because I found it didn't add anything to the dish - if you wish you can add 1/2 cup chopped peanuts at the very end.
