1/2 can (20-ounce) unsweetened pineapple tidbits (approx. 1 cup)
3 cups chunked red apples (about 2 medium apples)
3/4 cup chopped celery
1/4 cup raisins
2 tablespoons dry-roasted sunflower kernels
1/4 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
1/4 cup plain fat-free yogurt
2 tablespoons sugar (artificial sweetener may be substituted)
1. Drain pineapple. Measure half the tidbits. Reserve 1/4 cup of the juice. (Save remaining tidbits and juice for another salad.)
2. In a large bowl, combine fruits, celery and sunflower kernels.
3. In a smaller bowl, mix mayonnaise, yogurt, sugar and pineapple juice until sugar is dissolved.
4. Pour dressing over fruit mixture. Toss to coat. Chill until serving.
Note from contributor: I found that a dash of salt enhanced the flavors. Such an addition would affect the sodium content.
