Waldorf Salad


1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup celery, thinly sliced
1 cup red seedless grapes, sliced
2 sweet apples, cored and chopped
6 Tbsp mayonnaise (or plain yogurt)
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice

In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise (or yogurt) and the lemon juice. Mix in the apple, celery, grapes, and walnuts. Some people add salt and pepper to taste.

Of course, this is the traditional Waldorf Salad recipe (made by my grandma). However, there are many variations of the salad going around. Use one Green Apple and one sweet Red apple of your choice. I often throw in some raisins or Craisins in place of the grapes. For a tropical version of the salad, add chunked fresh pineapple in place of the grapes, some mandrin oranges and throw in 1/4 cup of shredded coconut.
