Waldorf Salad 


Servings 8 servings





  • 6 Tbsp mayonnaise or plain yogurt (86.4 g) (3/8 cups)

  • 1 tsp honey

  • 1 Tbsp lemon zest

  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • Pinch of freshly ground black pepper



  • 2 apples cored and chopped into cubes (Sweet apples like Fuji or Honeycrisp recommended)

  • 1 cup green seedless grapes quartered

  • 1 cup celery thinly sliced

  • 1 cup walnuts chopped

  • 6 leaves butter lettuce for serving



  • In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise (or yogurt), honey, lemon zest and juice, salt and pepper.

  • In a large bowl, combine apple, celery, grapes, and walnuts.

  • Pour dressing over salad and gently toss to combine.

  • Serve on a bed of fresh butter lettuce.



  • The best apples are crisp, sweet, juicy apples like a Fuji, Jonagold, or Honeycrisp. I prefer to leave the skin on for extra color and flavor.

  • Plain greek yogurt can be used in place of the mayonnaise, however you may need to add more honey to compensate for the tartness.
