The Waldorf salad we know today usually has walnuts and often times grapes added atop a bed of lettuce.
I don’t know about you but apples and walnuts are one of my favorite combos. Throw some chicken into the mix and I can make a meal out of it.
Or a party.
I’m not a big fan of celery so I only added a little, chopped so small I hardly knew it was there. If you can’t even stand that much you can substitute with chopped red onion or add more – if you like it.
I mixed lemon juice and a touch of honey into the mayo to make the dressing. You can substitute Greek yogurt if you like or do half mayo – half yogurt.
You can eat it as is, on a green salad, stuffed into pitas, on crackle bread, flatbread, croissants or with crackers.
When you pull out the crackers it’s definitely party time.
