Sweet Tart Waldorf Apple Salad

Rated as 4.86 out of 5 Stars

"This salad is a combination of a fruit dip recipe I learned last week and an apple salad I saw in the grocery store. It was enough inspiration to come up with this delicious recipe for our cook-out this afternoon! I have two boys and a daycare and would recommend this recipe as super-simple to make with kids. Children love chopping apples (even littles can do this with a butter knife) and mixing the dressing. I used ¾ of my dressing and reserved the rest to use as fruit dip later."

I did make a few changes. I eliminated the mayo. I dislike it and, I typically don't eat Waldorf salad because of the mayo. I only used Winesap apples, a tart red/green apple, for the sweet/tart...

Loved this recipe (and my husband did too!). The only thing I changed was pecans for walnuts ~only because I did not have any walnuts on hand; I'm sure the walnuts would of worked great too... ...
