Waldorf Salad

Crispy apples,nuts, celery, and cranberries enveloped in a mayonnaise/sour cream dressing to make it light tasting and a delight to the taste buds.  This Waldorf Salad is slightly different from the original in that I used mayonnaise and sour cream to make the dressing.  Normally it would be made with just mayonnaise.  The addition of sour cream adds a lightness to the dressing that pairs beautifully with the fruit.  You could also use yogurt instead of the sour cream.  This is a texture rich salad.  The creamy light tasting dressing combined with the crispy apples, celery and nuts make your mouth very happy!  It gets to savor and chew all that deliciousness.  A classic Waldorf Salad is made with either raisins or dates.  I chose to use dried cranberries to add a little more zing for my taste buds.  The lemon juice in the salad paired wonderfully with all the ingredients and brightened the flavor.  I could have sat and eaten the entire bowl!  I hope you enjoy this terrific salad as much as I do!  Enjoy!
