Vegan Waldorf Salad

This is such a simple salad – rich and creamy and perfect for summer salad days. It’s a big hit with children too. The combination of sweet apples and grapes with a nut dressing and crunchy celery, plus plenty of greens, makes this a hearty filling option.

Serves: 4

  1. Salad:
  2. 1 large head of romaine lettuce
  3. Large handful of watercress or arugula
  4. Handful of seedless grapes, halved

  7. Handful of chopped walnuts
  8. 3/4 cup cherry tomatoes, halved

  • Place all the ingredients for the dressing in a Nutribullet or blender with enough water to create a thick creamy dressing. This dressing can be kept in the fridge for 3-4 days.
  • In a large bowl, place all the ingredients and mix well. When ready to serve, drizzle over the dressing and toss to coat. The salad will keep in the fridge for a couple of days.
