No-Dairy Waldorf Salad
It’s not a party without Waldorf salad! This dairy-free version contains a light dressing made with soy yogurt (or light mayonnaise) and lemon juice, which adds just enough moisture, and a dash of curry powder for pizazz. This salad will keep for up to five days refrigerated.
Preparation time: About 15 minutes
Chilling time: 2 hours
Yield: 4 servings
1/3 cup plain soy yogurt (or light mayonnaise)
1/3 cup light mayonnaise
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon lemon zest
2 teaspoons curry powder
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1 rib celery, diced (about 1/2 cup)
3/4 cup seedless red grapes, halved
1 unpeeled, medium Granny Smith apple, diced
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
6 cups chopped Romaine lettuce
In a small bowl, whisk together yogurt, mayonnaise, lemon juice, zest, curry, and sugar to make the dressing.
In a large bowl, combine celery, grapes, apple, walnuts, and half of the dressing. Toss well using a flexible spatula or wooden spoon.
Add lettuce and remaining dressing. Toss to combine.
Chill for at least 2 hours and serve.
For a different flavor and slightly different look — add 3 tablespoons orange juice and 1/2 teaspoon powdered ginger.
