Carrot-Apple Salad

1 (8 ounce) can unsweetened crushed pineapple
2 medium tart apples, diced
3 cups shredded carrots
3 tablespoons raisins
3 tablespoons flaked coconut
1/3 cup fat-free reduced-sugar vanilla yogurt
1/3 cup fat-free plain yogurt
3 tablespoons reduced-fat mayonnaise or salad dressing
1 tablespoon lemon juice

Drain pineapple, reserving juice in a bowl. Add apples to the juice; toss to coat. Let stand for 5 minutes; drain. In a large bowl, combine the pineapple, carrots, raisins, coconut and apples. In a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Pour over carrot mixture and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 3-4 hours or until chilled.

Very, very good! My girls devoured theirs and asked for more. Really good to throw in dried cranberries as well.
