Loved this! It's a bit more exciting than the usual mayo-based salads. I loved all the flavors and textures. I made it just as written, using the mayonnaise and I used a little more mustard than listed. This is wonderful and I'm glad I tried it. Thanx!

We had an Oktoberfest theme for our monthly quilting potluck lunch yesterday. I brought this and everyone loved it! It is very tasty with a good crunch from the apples. I didn't know what size dill pickles to use. I bought a jar of Claussen's dill wholes and used four in the mid range of sizes, so I'd say they were about three and a half by a little less than an inch thick. I used sour cream instead of the yogurt because it was what I had on hand. I used nice deli salami which was less dry than the stick kind, and it was delicious. I also ended up doubling the dressing (except the onions) so it was perhaps creamier than the original. Oh wow! What a great find. Thanks, Sylvie, and thanks to your mum.

A great salad! So good for the summer! I made some changes though! I used more yoghurt and less mayo! I used for the first time pickle juice and apple with eggs! Bizzare but tasty. Oh, and I redused the salami and used more gouda, about 300gr cause I love this cheese! 5 stars and a big thanks for Sylvie and her mum!

To be honest I didn't care for this salad. It was not really my kind of thing. BUT my husband just loved it! So 5 stars from DH and 3 stars from me.

Yum! Yum! Sylvie, please thank your mum for me. This brought back sweet memories for me! I had to make two changes due to what I had on hand but I don't think it affected the overall taste of the dish. First, I did use mayo as I really don't like the taste of Miracle Whip but added another 1 tsp of pickle juice. Second, I didn't have access to a good bolonga, so I used salami(a very good log)in its place. I loved it, and I have not eaten this type of meat for a very long time!! I served it at a party of college students and got a mixed reaction, but to me,WOW! Oh, with the apples, I used two sweet and one tart. The next day was even better!
