Apple Waldorf Salad


It not always that we are able to create a recipe....its sometimes so much easier to just follow a recipe. I do that a lot too....but I end up tweaking it here and there just to suit my taste...don't we all...but that I recommend it, cos if we don't like the taste then how can we eat it!!:))

Its once very long ago that I tasted this and loved it a lot!!
Since apples are in season, thought of making this for the old times sake....I researched a lot on the recipe and found that its actually made of mayonnaise, sugar et all.....
Since mayo has eggs in it, I wanted to substitute it with something else, something which is creamy..

BTW I love creamy salads, be it pasta salads or fruit...love dressings....ranch, blue cheese, italian...bring it on! :))

So in my research came across that it can also be made with yogurt...so happy that I hit the jackpot....I made it today.....I am going to again make it for my kid's upcoming big party, so this was a test trial.
Recipe is from Martha Stewart.....Can she go wrong??..lol no..so I chose her recipe...
(I am not reposting her recipe!)

Only tweaks I made were....I like it little sweet...so added a 1 tsp of sugar. If you like it even more sweet, add more....and I added a few dried cranberries, even raisins can be used!
Lemon juice helps the apples not change their color and the apples I chose are Granny Smitha...for the tartness and crisp nature and a small Mac....But you can use any and only one kind if you prefer!
Refrigerating it for a while before serving helps the juices to come out and make it more tasty...
In the recipe it says you can refrigerate up to overnite!
