Waldorf Salad / Apple Celery Salad

I'm sorry for the long hiatus... Although I have been clicking pictures of new dishes and there are quite a few recipes that I am yet to post, there just hasn't been enough time to actually write a post. Our office has been going through some rather painful changes and all I can look forward to is more pressure and long hours but hopefully it will also mean that I will learn new things and figure out a way to cope with the changes (or atleast that's what I have been telling myself).

Anyway, let's move on to tastier things...  My sister-in-law told me about this salad as we often discuss about  healthy meal ideas. Since celery is not something that the family eats readily, I try to incorporate it in different dishes and this one is awesome - combined with all the fruits and a slightly sweet creamy dressing, it doesn't taste bland like you would expect a salad.

WALDORF SALAD / APPLE CELERY SALAD



Ingredients:

Apple  - 1 large (I used Fuji since they are crisp & sweet and also peeled them)
Celery - 3 stalks, finely diced 
Grapes - 1 cup, halved or cut into thirds (or use few tbsp of raisins instead)
Walnuts - 4 or 5 halves, roasted and cut into small pcs (I ran out of them so skipped them this time)
Sour Cream - 2 tbsp
Yogurt (homemade - thick) - 2 tbsp
Honey - 1/2 tp 1 tsp
Salt, pepper - to taste

Method:

1)
Cut apple into small cubes & finely dice the celery stalks.
2) Toss the apple, celery, grapes, walnuts in a bowl.
3) Combine the sour cream, yogurt, honey, salt & pepper in a small bowl for the dressing
4) Mix everything together and chill for a while before serving this tasty salad.

  3. Like the fruits that went into this lovely salad. Celery is something that bothers me even in soup.
