EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

*To toast almonds, heat oven to 350°F. Spread almonds in ungreased shallow pan. Bake uncovered 6 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until light brown.

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.
