Curried Waldorf Salad

The original Waldorf salad (created at the hotel of the same name in the 1800) combined celery, apples and mayonnaise, with walnuts and raisins later added to the mix. This version uses less mayonnaise substituting some yogurt in its place but it has the same sweet, savoury and crunchy mixture of celery, apples, raisins and walnuts...
