Waldorf salad is such a classic, and one of my favourite salads. This is my modernised version. As much as I love a classic, it seems a shame to cover the pretty apples with mayo. I have updated the dressing to a herby green goddess dressing to be drizzled over the salad, and included shaved fennel which pairs so well with apple. I think I’m ready for Spring with this salad! 

Serves 10 

Prep Time; 20 minutes 

INGREDIENTS 

  • 3-4 Pink Lady® apples, sliced
  • 1 large bulb of fennel, thinly sliced
  • 2 ripe avocados, sliced
  • 4 celery sticks, shaved or thinly sliced
  • 1 large Fennel bulb, shaved, or 2 -3 baby fennel
  • 2 Tbsp (30ml) chopped walnuts
  • 2 spring onions, thinly sliced 
  • Handful of micro herbs to garnish

Dressing

  • 1 cup mixed herbs, basil, coriander, rocket
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • ¼ cup (60ml) low fat  plain yoghurt
  • 2 Tbsp (30ml) mayonnaise ( not salad cream ) 
  • 1 Tbsp ( 15ml) Tahini
  • Juice (60ml) and zest of 1 lemon
  • Salt and milled pepper

Method:

  • Arrange the apples slices, fennel, avo and celery onto a serving platter.
