California Waldorf Salad
  • 1 pound fresh romaine or baby spinach, torn
  • 2 stalks chopped celery
  • 3 apples, in chunks (I usually do 2 Granny Smith & 1 Fuji)
  • ½ cup dried cranberries
  • ½ cup chopped cashews
  • 1 large can mandarin oranges, drained
  • 2 sprigs parsley, chopped
  • 2 sprigs basil, chopped
  • Juice from a lemon (save rind for dressing)
  • Dressing:
  • ½ package Wholly Avocado
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • ½ tsp lemon zest
  • 2-3 T honey (to taste)
  1. Toss apples with lemon juice. In a food processor, combine dressing ingredients and pulse till very smooth. Taste to adjust lemon and honey balance, add additional zest or juice as needed. Toss together all the ingredients with the dressing. I usually end up with a bit of dressing left over since I tend to lightly dress the salad. My kids prefer the salad "naked" with the dressing on the side. Enjoy!
