Waldorf Salad Variations

Waldorf salad reminds me of my Grandmother, Irene Burgess Klein.  I’m pretty sure she used jelly in hers…but it was likely her homemade jelly! The dressing for the original Waldorf salad was just 1/4 c mayonnaise.

2 or 3 tart apples (like Granny Smith)
2 T lemon juice
2 stalks celery, minced
1 c seedless grapes, whole or halved
1/4 c raisins
1/2 c walnuts

OTHER OPTIONS: sliced ripe pears, mango, pineapple, grated carrot, mandarin oranges or clementine sections

Mix apples with lemon juice in a medium sized bowl right after slicing. Add the rest of the salad ingredients. Whisk together your choice of dressing, then combine everything and mix well.

DRESSINGS
1/2 c plain yogurt
1/4 c mayonnaise
1/2 c orange or pineapple juice
OR
1/2 c plain yogurt
2-3 t lemon juice
1 ripe avocado, mashed
1-2 T honey
OR
1/2 c yogurt
1/4 c mayo
1/3 c crumbled blue cheese
OR
1 c yogurt
1/2 c pineapple or orange juice
1/4 t cinnamon
pinch ground cardamom
