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 contrast. I used black grapes and doubled the cranberries (mixed in) for the color. I loved the salad. The leftovers were my lunch for 2 days after our Thanksgiving dinner. Read More

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... Thx for sharing Read More
