Curried Waldorf Salad

Submitted by Mango

This is a nice salad to serve at the holidays because of the festive red apples. I like to serve it in a glass bowl for presentation's sake. I've doctored up the traditional "Waldorf" dressing to make it a little more fruity and spicy. I like this version much better than the original. Family members at our Christmas party kept asking me what was in it. Well, here you go. I've made this recipe mostly as a side dish for large potlucks, but you can also serve this as more of a featured salad, plated and served atop curly green leaf lettuce.

Ingredients

  • 12 Jonagold or Gala Apples
  • 1 Stalk Celery (thinly sliced)
  • 1 half cup Yellow Onion (finely chopped)
  • 1 cup Walnuts (chopped)
  • 1 Half cup Mayonaise
  • 1 Half cup Honey
  • 1 Quarter cup Fresh Orange Juice
  • 1 Half tsp Curry Powder
  • 3 Lemons (juiced)

Instructions

Wash and core the apples and cut them into 1 to 2 inch cubes, add them to your serving bowl. As you are cutting each apple, add a little bit of the lemon juice and toss so that your apples will not turn brown. Note: the apples will turn brown very quickly after cutting; start adding a little bit of the lemon juice immediately after cutting each apple to prevent that from happening. Add the thinly sliced celery, finely chopped onion and chopped walnuts to the cut apples in your bowl. Toss lightly making sure not to bruise the apples.

For the dressing use a glass measuring cup with a spout (mostly for mixing and pouring not for measuring.) Add 1/2 cup of mayonaise (Note: if you want to make a cholesterol free or vegan version of this salad, you can also use Vegenaise and it tastes pretty much the same) 1/2 cup of honey, 1/4 cup of orange juice and 1/2 teaspoon of curry powder. Mix thoroughly until smooth. Pour dressing over the apple mixture in the bowl and toss gently to coat evenly, taking care not to bruise the apples. Serve
