There are days when you do not want to have meat or poultry for dinner or lunch. You prefer a healthy yet simple meal for a change. Well, we have a solution for you whenever you feel that way. Instead of getting into all the complicated recipes and ingredients, we have put together a rather simple and devouring salad recipe for you.
This salad has a sweet and sour taste to it that serves as a treat to the taste buds.
Traditionally this salad is called Waldorf. This salad comprises of a variety of vegetables and fruits and even nuts. We have only used walnuts but you are free to use cashews or any other of your favorite nuts as well. Instead of mayonnaise, you can use plain yogurt as well.
The Waldorf salad is a complete crunchy meal in itself.
