Waldorf Salad Recipe

Wednesday, June 10, 2015
Classic Waldorf Salad is made all the better by the addition of greek yogurt and honey. With apples, grapes and walnuts this is a favorite salad for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner and delicious for potlucks from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.

So with the beginning of the first day of summer almost upon us I am officially craving Waldorf Salad.

Waldorf Salad is one of those classic picnic or potluck recipes that was a standard dish at family gatherings.

I remember my Grandma Lorna whipping up Waldorf Salad for family picnics on a few hot summer days.

I used yogurt and honey to lighten the dressing up in this classic dish and was able to cut back on the mayo. If someone had told me there was mayo in this dish before I tried it I probably would have turned my nose up and run the other way, but trust me Waldorf Salad is delicious! 

I've never been big on mayo but it makes for a deliciously creamy dressing with a nice tang that really pulls the flavors of the sweet raisins, apples, grapes and walnuts together.

Then in memory of my Great Grandparents I decided to pull out the depression glass bowl Grandma Lorna gave to me a few years beck that she inherited from my Great Grandma Sachs. I think my summer goal will be to fill this bowl with gorgeous food instead of hiding it in the china hutch since every meal should be a celebration.

Waldorf Salad Recipe Dressing in a bowl greek yogurt, with just a little mayonnaise, lemon juice, salt, and sweetened with honey in a bowl.

To make dressing for Waldorf Salad in a large bowl stir together :

  • 2/3 cup Plain Greek Yogurt
  • 1/4 cup Mayonnaise
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon Honey
  • 1 tablespoon Lemon Juice
  • 1 pinch Salt 
I find the lemon juice brightens the dressing along with the pinch of salt.

In a bowl grapes, gala apples, red grapes, golden raisins, and walnuts to make Waldorf Salad.

Add 4 whole Seeded and Diced Gala Apples, 1 1/2 cups Sliced In Half Seedless Red Grapes,  1/3 cup Golden Raisins and 1/3 cup Roughly Chopped Walnuts. 

Mix with yogurt honey dressing until well combined.

Cover and refrigerate until cold.

If serving Waldorf Salad at a picnic remember to keep salad cold since it does contain mayo.
Serve in your favorite dish and enjoy!
