    This is a lovely and crunchy looking salad. Have you tried using thickened yogurt instead of mayonnaise? Yogurt’s whey might leak a bit. Could adding cornstarch help with the thickening of the yogurt?
    Do you have a similar recipe without mayo?
    What are your thoughts?
    Thank you Kristyn
