FMTV - Waldorf Salad

Waldorf Salad

Exclusive on FMTV

Series: Food Matters Main Meal Recipes | Episode: 14 | Runtime: 3m 42s | Release date: 2016

Who says you can't make friends with salad? We think you can with this salad that is both delicious and nutritious.

Serves: 2

Why is it good for you: 

We've reinvented the original ‘Waldorf Salad’ Food Matters style by omitting the usual thick, ‘creamy’, loaded with sugar dressings often found on store-bought ones. Replacing the mayonnaise with gut-loving yogurt, which is full of healthy bacteria, instantly lightens up this meal. 

The dressing packs a punch of flavor with the addition of Dijon mustard and apple cider vinegar.  Apple cider vinegar is a must-have health food staple with a multitude of health benefits ranging from preventing fat accumulation to blood pressure control and reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease. 

Let’s not forget the romaine lettuce.  Unlike its counterpart, the iceberg, romaine is super nutrient-dense and up there with the likes of spinach. High in fiber, iron, manganese, folate, vitamins A, K & C this green is a star ingredient.

Looks yummy... never included grapes in mine nor a mustard-based dressing. Looking forward to a new preparation. Thank you!

Wow. This is the first time that I tried making the Waldorf Salad. I am allergic to nuts so I switched it to sunflower seeds. The grapes are not in season where I live, so I just skipped them for now. Even with the change and missing ingredient - this is so flippin' delicious! I actually wrote it up in my daily gratitude book. Thank you :)

So much going on about the seeds,, to take out or not. Lisa wants to know why take seeds out if so full of good stuff. FM insists you need to take the seeds out, yet never says why ? you could eat them alone.,they may be hard for some people to chew. Then the insisting everything be organic, we would go broke eating pure organic. We bought the same amount of veggies/fruits, all regular vs all organic.... $16.00 vs $45,00 at a local store. Now we are wondering where to move to be able to eat all organic. Australia ? where do the FM people live down there that they can eat all organic all the time,, we would like to know. Also where in the states could we live to have organic near by to buy? What's really sad is we live in Hawai'i Big Island n remote area and to get anywhere is 2 hours, Even then finding organic is hard unless try hit the farmers markets but they are all different days and a long drive. We need to find a better place if going to eat organic,, can grow some things here, not much its too hot.

Hi Russell! We would like to personally thank you for your feedback, and this reminder to be more consciously aware when we are delivering our information to such a global audience. In a nutshell, all the products you consume must contain only the most natural ingredients, ideally organic, wild crafted, and be sustainably and ethically produced. If organic produce is not available, look for spray-free produce. A great way to save money is to ask the farmer about their farming practices as many farms may be spray-free and organic, however, may not yet have certification. Shopping at your local farmers’ markets also means you will eat seasonal fresh fruits and vegetables. Much love ❤ ~ Jasmin.
