  Re: (...)
This is such a nice light flavorful salad!!! It's from a newsletter I get from Hawaii and we had it for dinner today.

Layered Piña Colada Chicken Salad - Hawaiian recipe - serves 6

1 container piña colada lowfat yogurt -- (6 ounces)
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lime juice -- (1 1/2 to 2)

In a 4-quart clear glass serving bowl, where salad ingredients except almonds in order listed. Spoon dressing evenly over salad; sprinkle with almonds.

and, here's a Caribbean jerk seasoning I made -

Caribbean Jerk Seasoning & Rub
2 T. dried minced onion (I used 1/2 T. onion powder)
1 T. garlic powder
4 tsps. crushed dry thyme leaves (I used 1 T.)
2 tsps. salt
2 tsps. ground allspice
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 T. sugar
2 tsps. black pepper
1 tsp. cayenne pepper (I used 1/2 tsp.)

In a jar with tight fitting lid, shake together all spices and seasonings. Store tightly covered at room temp. Makes about 1/2 cup

Because I'm not a big yogurt fan, I didn't have high expectations for this, but we both just loved it.... that's why no pictures.
Retired and having fun writing cookbooks, tasting wine and sharing recipes with all my friends.

Sounds so "springy"! Perhaps this should go on the menu in the next two weeks, you know, to get us in the mood.
