Waldorf Salad

A tasty and healthy twist on a classic Waldorf salad recipe. It makes a great side salad for sausage rolls or a healthy weekday lunch.


For the dressing

50g plain yoghurt

40g light mayonnaise

1 tsp fresh lemon juice

30g wholegrain mustard

For the salad

40g raisins

100g celery, 1cm pieces

160g kohlrabi, peeled, 1cm pieces

1 apple, peeled, 1cm pieces

55g sweet gem lettuce, shredded

2 spring onions, both white and green parts, finely sliced

40g walnuts

1 tsp olive oil

Salt and pepper


In a small bowl, combine the yoghurt, mayonnaise, lemon juice and wholegrain mustard. Season with salt and pepper, stir well and set aside.

In another small bowl, add the raisins and pour in boiling water - enough to cover the raisins. Leave to one side whilst you prepare the rest of the salad.

In a large bowl, add the chopped celery, kohlrabi, apple, spring onions and shredded sweet gem lettuce. Add the walnuts, breaking them up a little with your hands as you add them into the bowl. Add the olive oil and season generously with salt and pepper and stir.

Drain the raisins and shake off the excess moisture then add to the rest of the salad. Add the dressing and stir well. Taste for seasoning.

Serve the salad and enjoy!
