Recipe: Fall Waldorf Salad

Recipe: Fall Waldorf Salad

Before too long, it’ll be time for the local apple harvest! One delicious and healthy dish that’s perfect for using a crisp, autumn apple is this Waldorf Salad with Greek Yogurt Dressing. According to Wikipedia, This classic salad was originally created in 1896 by the maître d’hôtel at the historic Waldorf-Astoria hotel in Manhattan.1 This recipe replaces mayonnaise with Greek yogurt for a tangy and nutritious twist. Although it’s delicious on its own, you can make it into a heartier entrée for lunch or dinner by adding one cup of diced roasted chicken or roasted extra firm organic tofu.

Waldorf Salad with Greek Yogurt Dressing
Makes 2 servings

¼ cup 2% Greek yogurt
2 tsp honey
1 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
¼ tsp salt
1 large apple, cored and diced into small cubes
½ cup red grapes, sliced in half lengthwise
2 stalks celery, thinly sliced crosswise
½ head radicchio, cored and thinly sliced
¼ cup walnut pieces

In a small bowl combine the yogurt, honey and lemon juice. Combine the rest of the ingredients in a large bowl. Add the yogurt dressing and toss. Serve immediately or refrigerate for a few hours before serving.
