This was a great surprise - it was utterly delicious! I didn't have the yogurt so I used what I had - sour cream. Used about 12 dried apricots. Doubled the curry. Everyone really liked it! It's a wonderful colourful different dish to have at a picnic, summer BBQ, or potluck.

I liked this after adding more yogurt and more sugar to the dressing. I also throught the curry powder was a little odd in it. No one else liked it so I have to kill this myself. The first time I ate it I thought it was missing something. The second time I added some chopped walnuts and really enjoyed that. I probably will not make this again, even for just myself. Sorry, just a difference in taste I guess.

very very very good! nice change from the everyday salad. i served this with a garlic lime chicken with fruit salsa to company and they all wolfed it down, asked for more and then went home with the recipe. i also added cilantro because its good in everything! also, i used a 12 grain wild rice mix, so the salad was redish in color. otherwise, perfect!
