Western Waldorf

Time: 20 minutes. A fresh take on the classic mayonnaisey Waldorf, this salad works as a side dish, a main course (if you add chicken), or even--with a spoonful of plain yogurt--as a light dessert.

Sunset OCTOBER 2009

  • Yield: Serves 6


  • 1/4 cup unfiltered apple juice
  • 1 teaspoon roasted walnut or almond oil, or extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 Pink Lady apples (or another sweet-tart variety such as Jonathan or Piñata)
  • 1/2 cup toasted coarsely chopped walnuts
  • 2 large tangerines, peeled and sections cut in half
  • 1 cup seedless red or green grapes, halved


1. In a small bowl, whisk apple juice, oil, salt, cinnamon, and pepper until blended.

2. Core apples, cut into thin wedges, and cut wedges in half crosswise. In a salad bowl, combine remaining ingredients. Pour dressing over fruit and nuts and mix gently to coat.
