Creamy Waldorf Salad

Creamy Waldorf salad with Avocado Citrus Dressing

Here it is!  A creamy and wonderfully delicious Waldorf salad without marshmallows!  Its creaminess comes from the avocado citrus dressing. Yum.



1 large granny smith apple, cut into bite-sized pieces
1 large fuji apple, cut into bite-sized pieces
1 large stalk celery, diced small
¼ cup dried cranberries, dried cherries, or raisins


1 medium avocado
¼ cup fresh orange juice
1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
½ cup plain yogurt
1 Tbsp honey
salt to taste


DRESSING: In a small mixing bowl, mash up the avocado well.  Add remaining dressing ingredients and whisk until smooth.
COMBINE: Place the cut-up apples, celery, and cranberries into a medium sized serving bowl.   Stir in the dressing until everything is well coated.
FINISH: Top with walnuts and serve!


Note: This salad does not keep well.  Eat within an hour or two of preparation.
