WALDORF SALAD


This is one of the most popular salads. It is very simple and you can easily make it at home. This fruity salad is a treat in summer.

Ingredients:
Walnuts .... handful
Apples ...... 1
Celery ...... 1 stem
Lettuce ..... few leaves
Mayonnaise .. 2 tbsps
Yogurt .......... 2 tbsps
Honey .......... 1 tsp
Lemon juice ... 1 tbsp
Salt .............. a pinch or two
Black pepper ..... freshly ground.
I added one tsp of  crushed flaxseeds (not in the recipe but they are good for health.)

Method:
1. Toast the walnuts and break into pieces.
2. Wash and cut the apples into pieces with the skin. Squeeze lime juice over them. Chop the celery finely.
3. Whisk together the mayonnaise, yogurt, honey and season with pepper.
4. Toss the apple pieces, walnuts and celery in the mix and refrigerate.
5. Serve chilled on a bed of lettuce leaves.

You can add grapes or raisins to this salad if you like.
