I get a craving for a Waldorf Salad around this time every year, couldn't tell you why. Maybe it's the crisp crunchy apples, the sweetness of the raisins, or the creamy mayo dressing, yummm! Here's my super easy recipe.
1 large apple, unpeeled, chopped
Juice of 1 lemon, or about 2 tbsp
2 cups cooked chicken shredded (about 1 large breast)
1 cup red seedless grapes, halved
2 stalks celery chopped
2 tbsp chopped green onion
1/4 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
¼ cup mayonnaise
¼ cup fresh squeezed orange juice
1 tbsp honey
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
1 tsp fresh finely chopped dill or ½ tsp dried dill
Coat the chopped apple with the lemon juice in a large bowl. Add the chicken, grapes, celery, raisins and walnuts, and gently combine.
In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, orange juice, honey, dill and salt. Gently mix the dressing into the salad. Serve on a bed of mixed greens.
