Waldorf Salad

Although the original Waldorf salad featured only apples, celery, and mayonnaise, I have adjusted the recipe to feature my favorite flavors. It’s one of those dishes I can prepare at almost any time, because I keep a constant stock of all the ingredients— making for a light and easy lunch.

Waldorf Salad


Serves 1


  • 1-1/2 teaspoons light mayonnaise
  • 4 teaspoons plain non-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 large apple of any sweet type (e.g., Gala, Fuji, or Honeycrisp), diced
  • 1 tablespoon dried cranberries or raisins
  • 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts
  • 2 cups mixed greens



1. In a medium bowl, combine mayonnaise, Greek yogurt, and lemon juice into a thin paste. Add apple, cranberries, and walnuts to the bowl and stir to coat with dressing.

2. Transfer mixture to a bed of mixed greens on the serving plate. Enjoy with your favorite whole grain crackers or fresh roll.

  1. Don’t laugh, but I have NEVER tried Waldorf salad… I kind of want to now. It looks so fresh and yummy looking!!

  2. I don’t think you’re alone–I thought it was a common dish until I served it to Seth, and he had never heard of it. All I know is that I grew to love Waldorf Salad after my mom served it to me throughout my childhood!

  3. It has been way too long since I’ve had a waldorf salad! Thanks for reminding me how good these are! I’ve got to try this recipe!

  4. I just posted a Waldorf salad on my blog, but mine is way different. I used a rosemary vinaigrette instead of the mayo. It was good, but yours looks good too! I love these salads. They’re so quick and easy to make.
