Waldorf Salad

My family always included some sort of fruit salad along with our Easter meal.  It used to be a jello salad when my Grandma made it, but I always liked the ones with all fruit better.  A yogurt dressing was always nice.  One salad that is a classic and a crowd pleaser is a waldorf salad.  I have revamped that recipe to eliminate the mayonnaise, which I am sharing with you today.  In place of the usual creamy dressing, I make one with sweet coconut milk laced with lemon juice. It is very refreshing and a wonderful complement to the fruit. This would make a wonderful side dish for an Easter brunch!
