Description

We love this flavorful update of the American classic with a perfect balance of crisp apples, juicy grapes, sweet raisins and crunchy walnuts. The original Waldorf Salad was created more than a century ago at the legendary Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City, and its ingredients were just apples, celery and mayonnaise. Earthbound Farm's version has a lively West Coast flair that includes tender baby spinach and a lighter dressing.

Ingredients

  • ⅓ cup nonfat plain yogurt or sour cream
  • ⅓ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1 tsp grated lime zest
  • 2 tsp curry powder
  • ½ tsp honey or sugar
  • ½ cup thinly sliced Earthbound Farm Organic celery
  • ½ cup Earthbound Farm Organic Raisins
  • ¾ cup halved Earthbound Farm Organic seedless grapes (red or green)
  • 1 unpeeled Earthbound Farm Organic apple (cut into 1/3-inch dice, about 1 cup)
  • ½ cup toasted pecans or walnuts
  • 5 oz Earthbound Farm Organic Baby Spinach or Spring Mix (about 6 cups)

Directions

  1. Place the yogurt, mayonnaise, lime juice, zest, curry and honey in a small bowl, and whisk to combine.
  2. Place the celery, raisins, grapes, apple and nuts in a large bowl.
  3. Add about half of the yogurt dressing and stir to combine.
  4. Just before serving, add the spinach and toss to combine.
  5. Add more dressing if needed.
