Coat raisins, chopped celery, chopped apples, and chopped toasted walnuts with a mixture of fat-free mayonnaise and fat-free apple yogurt for a lightened version of traditional Waldorf salad.

How to Make It

Combine raisins and apple juice in a microwave-safe bowl; microwave at HIGH for 30 seconds. Let stand 2 minutes; drain. Combine raisins, celery, apple, and walnuts in a medium bowl. Stir in mayonnaise and yogurt.

Chef's Notes

"I developed this recipe to cut down on the fat content of the original Waldorf salad, which was dressed with heavy mayonnaise." --M. Georgene Laffey, Pinehurst, NC

So good! I ate the entire bowl of salad for dinner. Just could not stop. I left out the apple juice part, my raisins were soft enough. I used 3 tablespoon plain yoghurt and 1 T mayonnaise. Next time I would cut back on the raisins a bit, or use dried cranberry instead. I will make this again soon. Yummmm!

I've made this several times since it first appeared in the magazine. I also use vanilla yogurt, not even bothering to look for apple. It is so fresh tasting and really perfect to serve in the Fall. I oftentimes serve it with soup and/or sandwiches but I can eat it alone for lunch just as well.

Was really good- reminds me of the one my mom made but much healthier! I substituted grapes for celery and enjoyed for a healthy breakfast.

I made this salad to accompany Aunt Liz's Chicken Spaghetti, also a CL recipe from this site. I used ingredients on hand and substituted craisins cooked in grape juice and used all reduced fat mayonnaise. My guests loved the salad and there were no leftovers. I would like to experiment with other juices and dried fruit combinations. I will make it again.

I love this recipe. It is easy to make and tastes great. I have never found the apple yogurt so I use vanilla instead and I sprinkle in a little cinnamon.
