Vegan Waldorf Salad

Vegan Waldorf Salad

If you are not familiar with a Waldorf Salad, it was a signature dish at the Waldorf Hotel in New York City. Cole Porter liked it so much that he sang about it in the 1934 tune “You're the Top.” A Waldorf Salad is generally made with fresh apples, lettuce, celery, walnuts and topped with mayonnaise dressing. In my plant-based version, I added some tart cherries, golden raisins and dressed it with a light vegan mayonnaise dressing creating the perfect vegan Waldorf Salad. It was so yummy and you can't go wrong with a plant-based, low-calorie, high protein and vitamin-packed lunch to get you through your day. Hope you enjoy this vegan waldorf salad recipe as much as I did. Make sure you sign up for all of Ordinary Vegan's free recipes and please join our facebook community!

This salad would also taste delicious with pears. I had some cherries so I tossed them in. Anything goes but the one important element is the crispiness of the celery and the tartness of your apples.

Instructions
  1. Combine lettuce, celery, apples, grapes, raisins and walnuts in a large bowl.
