Apple, Celery And Walnut Salad
This is one of the seemingly endless number of variations on the classic Waldorf Salad. Typically, you'd find raisins instead of grapes. Some people prefer yogurt instead of mayonnaise. Others use pecans or some other nut. As long as the celery and apple are there, though, consider it a Waldorf.
1/2 cup toasted walnuts, roughly chopped
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon honey
2 Granny Smith apples, cored and chopped
1 cup diced celery
1/2 cup red seedless grapes, halved
6-8 leaves romaine lettuce
prep: 15 minutes
total: 20 minutes
1. In a small, dry skillet, toast the walnuts over medium heat, stirring often, 3-5 minutes. Sprinkle the walnuts with salt and pepper and set aside.
2. Whisk together the mayonnaise, lemon juice and honey in a large bowl. Prep the apples, celery and grapes, and stir them into the mayonnaise mixture.
3. Arrange the romaine on a large plate and pour the salad onto the center of the plate. Top with the toasted walnuts.
