Waldorf Salad or Just An Apple Sultana and Walnut One ?

Waldorf Salad

You may have recently seen a post on this blog called ' Tonight's low carb hardship meal it's one tough gig !' here 

Now part of the meal featured an apple, sultana and walnut salad. This salad mix is very similar to a 'Waldorf Salad' ... but I just use apples, sultana's and walnuts... although sometimes adding a little celery too.

Below, I've linked to where I first got the recipe idea from. It was Elise at Simply Recipes. I'm sure you would love it as it is, or amend it slightly as I did, to suit your taste, and dietary requirement.

Waldorf Salad Recipe:

Prep time: 10 minutes
Yield: Serves 2.

1/2 cup chopped, slightly toasted walnuts
1/2 cup celery, thinly sliced
1/2 cup red seedless grapes, sliced (or a 1/4 cup of raisins)
1 sweet apple, cored and chopped
3 Tbsp mayonnaise (or yogurt)
1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice

In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise (or yogurt) and the lemon juice. Add 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 1/4 teaspoon of fresh ground pepper. Mix in the apple, celery, grapes, and walnuts. Serve on a bed of fresh lettuce.

Well yes ... sometimes we do cheat (shock, horror) and use ready made mayonnaise, always looking for one with a smaller amount of carbs, and they are available ... BUT you may not want to do this. You may prefer to make your own mayonnaise, or salad dressing. If that is the case I recommend looking at this recipe.

Super Salad Dressing. This is as easy as it can get, idiot proof to boot! Uses whole eggs and olive oil. A healthy punch of goodness in a jar. |

So there you have it - once again the choice is yours.
 Thanks for reading, and Bon Appetit !

All the best Jan
