Turkey Waldorf Salad
The Waldorf salad has been a favorite American dish since the turn of the 20th Century, but the original mayonnaise-smothered recipe was in need of a makeover to fit into a healthier modern diet. We created this refreshingly lean version made with crunchy apples, celery, walnuts, sweet grapes, and turkey breast. Ours is lightened by blending yogurt with a touch of mayonnaise to make a creamy sauce that stays true to the flavor of the original. The result is a salad you’ll want to eat again and again.
This is a perfect way to use leftover turkey or chicken. Serve on lettuce, or use the whole lettuce leaves to make lettuce cups.
