Waldorf salads are a popular choice when dining out, but can be loaded with excess fat and calories. Luckily, we’ve whipped up a healthier version! Unlike the traditional version which calls for mayonnaise, our Waldorf salad with yogurt dressing gives you less fat along with more calcium and protein. This classic salad combines creamy dressing, omega-3-rich walnuts, and fiber-packed fruits into a delicious and refreshing side.
This salad would pair nicely with a chicken entrée. Try our Slow Cooker Lemon Chicken recipe as a Waldorf salad companion. For more healthy salad dressing ideas, see 3 Easy Vinaigrette Recipes for Slimming Summer Salads.
