Growing up, I loved Waldorf salad, which means at some point in my life, mayo didn’t bug me. My hatred of mayo now runs far deeper than any childhood memory of apple trees and mom’s cooking. Making the salad how my mom made it — with mayo, walnuts and raisins — would also make Greg cringe since he thinks walnuts are greasy and raisins are too sweet. So here’s a version we can both agree on.
- 4 cups apples, chopped into bite-sized pieces
- 1/2 cup chopped dates
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans
- 1/2 cup nonfat Greek yogurt (regular or low-fat will work too)
- 1/4 cup apple cider
- 1 tbsp honey
- juice from half a lemon
Toss pecans, dates and apples in a large bowl. In a smaller bowl, mix remaining ingredients together. Pour over apple mix and toss to coat. Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to eat.
