Home » Food » One of My Favourite Salads: The Waldorf

It’s Passover this week and this means it’s often challenging as there’s quite a few restrictions (i.e no flour, no beans, no corn, no this… no that…).  For me, it’s not so challenging as my kitchen is dairy  and I consider it as a week of clean eating ie. lots of fruit, veggies and fish.

Here’s a menu plan of what I served in 2011.

I’m going to share with you one of the recipes that I often serve during Passover (and throughout the year too).

Recipe: Waldorf Salad (taken from the Moosewood Cookbook by Mollie Katzen)

3 large apples, cut in chunks

Juice from 2 lemons

1 large orange, cut in small pieces

1 stalk chopped celery

1/4 cup raisins or craisins

1/2 cup toasted cashews

waldorf - ingredients


1 cup yogurt

1 small ripe avocado (mashed)

1/2 tsp grated lemon rind

3-4 tablespoons of honey


1. Combine all ingredients

2. For the dressing: Puree till smooth (or mash well – like I did. However it’s best to add all the ingredients into a blender or a Cuisinart so it’s super smooth)

3. Combine the ingredients with the dressing.

This salad is super simple to prepare AND super tasty too.

Happy Cooking.
