Janice's Light Waldorf Salad

This was the "fancy salad" that someone always brought to the nicer family gatherings. I was never a fan as I was in an anti-mayo phase for most of my youth. Now I just want to give a skip to the mayo for health reasons and this salad is one of my new favorites!

Waldorf Salad
serves four

Salad Ingredients:

1 cup celery, sliced
2 apples, Fuji, cut into chunks
2 T dried cranberries
1 T parsley, minced
2 T walnut pieces
4 lettuce leaves, such as Boston or Bibb

Dressing Ingredients:

2 T Greek Yogurt, 2%
2 T lemon juice, fresh squeezed
Pinch salt
1/8 t ground white pepper
1/8 t dried ground mustard
1 t honey


Prepare all the salad ingredients, except the lettuce, and place in a bowl.

Mix the dressing, taste, and adjust the seasonings to suit you.

Add the dressing to the salad and toss gently to combine.

Divide the salad evenly on top of each of the four lettuce cups. Enjoy all by itself for lunch, or as a delectable addition to dinner. Eat with a fork. Or as a fun salad wrap!
