I made this salad based on how good it sounded and am glad I did. I wound up adding a little bit of sugar and lemon to the dressing and threw in some bleu cheese (and chicken for my Dad) at the end but overall I thought this was very good. I wasn't quite sure how the salad was supposed to look so I made it sliced per the description took a photo then chopped up the rest and made it like a regular Waldorf. See both photos and make it your own way! Either way this was a good salad and more filling than you would think. Read More

I like this recipe! Its much healthier and lighter than the traditional Waldorf Salad. I used fresh spinach and kale instead of lettuce which was meatier and a bit more filling. Read More
