Very nice! I loved the addition of yogurt - next time, I think I may use 3/4 yogurt to 1/4 mayonnaise instead of half and half, and I think I'll try vanilla instead of plain. I used pecans instead of walnuts out of personal preference (though my son wants walnuts next time). I added dried cranberries to the mix, which were a nice addition. Thanks for posting!

This is a delicious nostalgia recipe. I had this salad often when I was a kid, and was very happy to find the recipe for it. I made it exactly as written and it is exactly as I remember the salad.

We really enjoyed this simple-to-prepare salad. I loved the dressing with yogurt. I made it exactly as written, but look forward to trying the other variations.
