The classic Waldorf salad. The only thing it takes to veganize this recipe is MAYO and guess what I found at Whole Foods this week? Just Mayo by Hampton Creek! I was so excited to find this and couldn’t wait to make every mayo recipe I have! I love supporting companies that are doing great plant-based work like this one and I love that it says “Joy on your sandwich” on the jar! Hampton Creek has a bunch of recipes on their site and I saw one for a Waldorf salad, one of my mom’s favorites. For our family party this weekend, I decided to make my own version and it was a big hit! Mom approved!
2 cups green grapes
2 stalks of celery
1 cup toasted chopped walnuts
The juice of 1/2 to 1 lemon
2 tablespoons Just Mayo, or more
Salt and white pepper, a pinch
Lettuce leaves, for garnish
Chop the walnuts into bite size pieces and toast in a 300 oven to 10 to 15 minutes, until fragrant. Let cool. Dice the apples. Slice the grapes and chop the celery into little semi-circles. Mix together in a bowl with the lemon juice. When the walnuts are cool add to the apples, grapes, and celery. Add the Just Mayo and toss well. Add more to make it as creamy as you like. Serve on lettuce leaves for a lovely and very professional presentation. Enjoy!
