Nice balance of ingredients with crunch and chewy with the craisins. Made with fuji apples. Used the apple vinaigrette dressing which was also good. Plan to make at Christmas for a "lighter" alternative from a waldorf salad.

I use raspberry vinaigrette dressing and cucumber instead of the green onions.
