Waldorf Salad

This is such a simple salad – rich and creamy and perfect for summer salad days. I also find this is 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 6.
Prep Time: 4 minutes


  1. Salad:
  2. 1 large head of romaine lettuce
  3. large handful of watercress or rocket
  4. Handful of seedless grapes, halved
  5. 1 apple, diced
  6. 2 sticks celery, chopped
  7. Handful of chopped walnuts
  8. 100g cherry tomatoes halved
  9. Nut Dressing:
  10. 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  11. Juice of 1/2 lemon
  12. 1tbsp olive oil or flaxseed oil

  14. 60ml water
  15. 40g cashew nuts or 1tbsp nut butter

  • Place all the ingredients for the dressing in a nutri bullet or blender with enough water to create a thick creamy dressing. This can be kept in the fridge for 3-4 days.
