Waldorf Salad Revisited

by Michele Pesula Kuegler | January 23rd, 2012 | Recipes, Salads

After spending most of the afternoon at our daughter’s gymnastics tournament, we were thinking of a meal that would be quick to prepare and filling.  My  husband suggested homemade steak subs with lots of veggies, and that seemed like a perfect solution.  Knowing that the subs themselves may not be filling enough for my husband and teenage son, I suggested we have a side with it.

Yes, chips would have been the quick answer, but I was hoping for something healthier.  I also knew that our fruit bin was filled with apples.  I haven’t consumed many servings of Waldorf Salad; the combination of mayonnaise and apples never seemed that appealing to me.  However, it is a classic recipe that is familiar to me and provided me with the basic idea for this salad.  I switched the mayonnaise for yogurt and added a few splashes of flavor, and we had a salad that pleased all of us.
