This Food Network Kitchens' version is true to the classic: crisp apples, crunchy celery, raisins and walnuts. All of that is held together with a honey, mayo and yogurt blend (the last two are low fat to slim down this heavy hitter). For some variety, mix up the apples -- maybe Gala and Granny Smith for a tart twist. Or make this a holiday dish by trading the raisins for dried cranberries.
