I liked the recipe however it was a little too 'onion-y' for me. Next time I will put only a little onion in instead. Read More

this is good. i gave 3 stars because the original recipe included onions which i don't like in my waldorf salad. so it's a personal taste thing. but it really is a good recipe. also this says 4 serving it's more like 14! made a huge amount. i like more dressing so i increased the dressing amount. and i always add marshmallows to mine.

I wasn't paying attention and accidentally bought some watercress at the grocery store. I did an ingredient search and came up with this recipe which I had everything on hand for. I've heard of waldorf salad but never tried it so I was a little sceptical about combining spices and chives with yogurt mayo fruit and this new green leafy thing. Boy am I glad I did! We followed the recipe exactly and it came out GREAT! I'll be buying watercress on purpose from now on just to make this recipe. Read More

This recipes was best the second day. The juices really settled and melded together in a way that made it pop! Will make again. Read More

Unfortunately watercress is not available in my community but I substituted with mixed greens. Best Waldorf Salad I've ever had dressing was a great finish and capped a flavorful treat. Only change I'll make is to add create a thicker dressing but with the same taste. Read More
