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.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Whisk yogurt, mayonnaise, curry powder, salt and cayenne in a medium bowl. Grate 2 teaspoons zest from the orange and add to the dressing.

  • 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 Read More

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. Read More
