Waldorf Salad – Scrumptious Side Dish
Healthier Version Waldorf Salad
My healthier version of Waldorf Salad makes a pretty presentation on your holiday or Sunday dinner table. We’ll substitute Canola mayo for real mayonnaise and use cottage cheese instead of heavy cream. You’ll note, I’ve substituted carrots for raisins. Carrots are naturally sweet and supply us with vitamin A. The pecan topping adds to the nutrition of this dish.
Your guests may happily have seconds, without guilt. Are you ready to create a healthier version of Waldorf Salad?

¼ cup chopped celery
¼ cup chopped walnuts

Step 1: Mix all the ingredients together except Canola, pecans and cottage cheese.
Step 2: In another bowl, mix the Canola and cottage cheese.
Step 3: Immediately prior to serving, add Canola and cottage cheese to salad and mix.
