This Classic Waldorf Salad is the cool, creamy, and crisp side dish that goes wonderfully with grilled meats, barbecues, or potlucks and parties.



For the dressing:

  • ½ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt

For the salad:

  • 1 ½ cups chopped apples, cut into ½-inch pieces
  • ¾ cup thinly sliced celery
  • 1 cup red grapes, halved
  • 1 cup torn romaine lettuce leaves
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 tablespoon finely minced fresh parsley


Make the dressing.

In a small bowl, whisk together the yogurt, sugar, lemon juice, and salt.  Set aside.

Place the apples, celery, grapes, romaine lettuce, walnuts and parsley in a large bowl.

Pour the dressing over the fruit and toss to coat.

Taste to adjust seasoning.

Serve chilled.
