Waldorf Salad 2 Ways
Apples, pecans, and raisins Oh My!!!
Here is my simple, lighter in taste and fat count version of the classic fruit and nut salad--as well as the original recipe.
This has always been a tasty little treat I like to indulge in. And with the lite Cool Whip, it's also healthy and guilt free. Which is always a nice thing.
~Classic dressing ingredients~
1/2 cup mayonnaise [ Light Mayo would work fine for this]
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 teaspoon lemon juice
*for a simple, lighter in taste and fat count version of the classic, instead try : 2/3 cup Lite Cool Whip***
*I've read a few recipes that call for Miracle Whip instead. I'm not a fan, but if you are--then there's yet another option for you.
3 apples -- [ red or green depending on your preference for sweet or tart] peeled, cored, and chopped(a good idea is to chop the apples first and then drench them in a bit of lemon juice to keep them from browning!)
1 cup thinly sliced celery
1/2 cup chopped walnuts [or pecans are good too!]
1/2 cup raisins, or 2/3 cup quartered grapes [red or green]
