Some of the items in this weeks basket was a ton of small red apples, half a celery and green grapes. I already had some pears in the fridge and walnuts in the freezer, so I decided to make a Waldorf Salad. I had only had Waldorf Salad once, years ago but I really enjoyed it back then. The dressing is a mixture of a homemade mayonaise and coconut cream.
3 small red apples cored and cubed
1 pear peeled, cored and cubed
2 tabs lemon juice
1 cup green grapes
2 sticks celery sliced into small pieces
generous half cup walnuts pieces
1 cup mayonaise (I used Bryannas recipe... it was quick and less vinegary than bought mayonaise. Scroll down the page to find the recipe.)
1/4 cup coconut cream approx
Place cube apples and pears in a bowl. Our over the lemon juice and stir to make sure each piece of apple and pear is coated. This is to stop the fruit going brown and unappetizing. Add the grapes, celery and walnut pieces.
In another bowl, mix the mayonaise and coconut cream. You might want to add the coconut cream by the tablespoon, stirring and tasting until it gets to a creamy smooth flavour.
Refrigerate before serving.
