    1ofdabest's Note:

    This recipe can be made many ways, with fruit or vegetable changes, different nuts, and variations on the dressing. My husband likes the dressing without the vanilla yogurt, more vegetables, and pecans. (Less sweet) My daughter likes the dressing with the yogurt and mandarin orange juice, lots of fruit, and almonds. (She likes it more sweet!) My son likes it with the shredded swiss cheese and no nuts. When my mother in law comes over, we leave out the shredded coleslaw due to her allergies. So have fun with this recipe. I've never made it exactly the same way twice, and I think every variation has been delicious!
