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.

This salad looks yummy. Just started trying to eat Whole Food Plant Based with no oil. So what’s a good substitution in the Waldorf dressing for the oil?

Hi Stacy, you could try omitting or swapping for nut butter, tahini or avo but these would need to be blended for a dressing. Hope this helps. Enjoy! 🌷 ~ Iris@FMTV

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 :)
