The famous Waldorf salad, full of apples, celery, raisins and walnuts, gets a healthful makeover with a touch of golden curry. It has nearly twice the fiber of typical versions.

  • ¼ cup nonfat plain yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons low-fat mayonnaise
  • ½ teaspoon curry powder
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper, or to taste
  • 1 orange
  • 2 tart-sweet red apples, diced
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • ⅓ cup golden raisins
  • ⅓ cup coarsely chopped walnuts, toasted (see Tip)


  • Active

  • Ready In

  1. Whisk yogurt, mayonnaise, curry powder, salt and cayenne in a medium bowl. Grate 2 teaspoons zest from the orange and add to the dressing.
  2. Using a sharp knife, cut off the peel and white pith from the orange. To make segments, hold the orange over the bowl (to catch the juice) and slice between each segment and its surrounding membranes. Add apples, celery, raisins and walnuts; toss to combine.
  • Tip: To toast chopped walnuts, cook in a small dry skillet over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until fragrant and lightly browned, 2 to 5 minutes.

Made this into a dessert by removing the mayonnaise, curry, cayenne, and celery. Used vanilla yogurt, and increased yogurt to coat. Disappeared very quickly! :D

It was nice and refreshing. The curry really makes a difference without being overpowering. Even my toddler liked it.

I was really surprised at how much I liked this salad, as I HATE the traditional waldorf. This is light but addictive, thanks to the heat from the curry. Will definitely make again-- would be a good picnic salad if you can keep it cold.
