I used regular mayo because I hate the fat free stuff, and I also tried this with sour cream and plain yogurt, all with very good results, with a slightly different, but pleasing taste. I also used regular sugar, because I do not like substitutes. I only used one large Granny Smith apple, one good sized grated carrot, a small amount of celery and about 2 tablespoons of raisins. The raisins add a bit more color and of course texture and flavor. I think it is key to use a tart firm apple. I would like to try this as a base for coleslaw, adding both green and red cabbage.

This turned out great! Perfect diet food because it tastes like it's not. I could serve this simple recipe entertaining friends who aren't dieting. Love it!

I made this because it sounded so good, not because of the WW points. I coarse-grated carrots, 4 small ones, plus added a thinly sliced orange and about 1/3 C raisins. For the apple I used one Fuji rather than a Granny Smith, since that's what I had on hand. I slightly increased the dressing ingredients (with the exception of the Splenda) because of the volume I had. It was perfect, lightly coating but not drenching the salad. It was delicious and refreshing!

Loved this. I cut the recipe in half and it made at least 3 servings. I did throw in 2 tbls of raisins increasing the points by 1/2 per serving. Thanks for posting. :)

A nice side for lunch or dinner. Easy low fat and calorie salad. Made as written. While this is a great salad I did miss the things that run up the calories, walnuts and raisins. Thanks for the post.

Really easy, healthy and tasty! I didn't have cider vinegar but used a splash of white vinegar. My DFIL really liked this and it was good for his diabetes as well. Made for Spring 2009 PAC. Thanks!

I used kraft reduced fat olive oil mayo, added some grapes and low fat shredded cheese. I served it on a bed of lettuce to make a complete lunch. I made this again adding in some tunafish and that was good too. Thanks for a yummy new way to top salad.
