Best ever Waldorf salad recipe

Comments : 11 Posted in : Salads on by : Daniela Anderson Tags: , , , , , ,

Best ever waldorf salad recipe with celery, apples, spinach, grapes and walnuts, amazingly fresh and crunchy, with a light Greek yogurt and mayo dressing, and a good drizzle of lemon juice. The perfect recipe when you want something quick and healthy.

With Christmas and Boxing Day truly over, we have a tiny break before the New Year to rest from all those mince pies, roasts and booze. If you can’t possible see turkey in front of your eyes anymore, but would much rather try something lighter, this Waldorf salad is the answer. It might not cure a bad hangover, but it can certainly help detox from those heavy gargantuan meals. Now, don’t expect to lose all the extra weight you might have put on these days in a go only, better take it easy and enjoy, there’s more to come soon.

I do love a good salad, although, you know me, l wouldn’t just eat leaves, that’s not food. Throw some other ingredients in, and you can count on me.Β  There are a few variations of the Waldorf salad, and you’ll probably find that most recipes call for lettuce, rather than fresh spinach. But love it or hate it, spinach is one of the healthiest stuff you can get, and l’m a spinach girl through and through. Another salad that I absolutely love isΒ Apple and baked paprika chicken salad with dijon mustard dressing, and guess what, if does have spinach too.

But coming back to our best ever Waldorf salad, you can completely omit the mayonnaise and only use yogurt instead, if you are really counting the calories, although the amount used is only tiny. Or perhaps use home-made mayonnaise? At least you know what is in it.Β  All in all, it’s a lovely salad that l so much enjoyed, worth giving it a go.
