Waldorf salad questions

So far I've gathered the following for my Waldorf salad:

  • 1/2 cup chopped, slightly toasted walnuts
  • 1/2 cup celery, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup red seedless grapes, sliced (or a 1/4 cup of raisins)
  • 1 sweet apple, cored and chopped
  • 3 Tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Lettuce
1) how do you "slightly toast" walnuts?
2) how different will it taste with yogurt instead of mayo?
3) can I use bottled lemon juice?
4) I'm used to buying the packaged salads at the grocery store. Is that not recommended for this? I was just going to get the regular iceberg lettuce pack.

Just put some walnuts on a baking sheet in the oven at about 300 degrees F for about 15 minutes.
Yogurt may be okay, but, give it a tangy taste that mayo wouldn't
bottled lemon is fine
iceberg is fine also.
