This Waldorf Salad is slightly different from the original in that I used mayonnaise and sour cream to make the dressing. Normally it would be made with just mayonnaise. The addition of sour cream adds a lightness to the dressing that pairs beautifully with the fruit. You could also use yogurt instead of the sour cream.
This is a texture rich salad. The creamy light tasting dressing combined with the crispy apples, celery and nuts make your mouth very happy! It gets to savor and chew all that deliciousness. A classic Waldorf Salad is made with either raisins or dates. I chose to use dried cranberries to add a little more zing for my taste buds.
The lemon juice in the salad paired wonderfully with all the ingredients and brightened the flavor. I could have sat and eaten the entire bowl! I hope you enjoy this terrific salad as much as I do! Enjoy!
