Expert Tips

  • We've replaced ingredients with great-tasting alternatives to create better-for-you recipes that are just as yummy as the originals.
  • If the salad is a bit dry, just stir in 1 to 2 tablespoons fat-free (skim) milk before serving.
  • Dried cranberries can be substituted for the cherries—also, if you really like poppy seed, go ahead and stir in a little extra.
