Love this fresh version of the waldorf salad you use cream cheese and orange juice instead of mayo. I got this one from my Mom over 18 years ago, not sure where she got it. My boys will even eat this one.

We just did a Thanksgiving "taste test" with this recipe alongside a traditional waldorf salad recipe made with Miracle Whip. DeeMiddleton's "Simply Wonderful" recipe is the clear winner! Besides better flavor, the cream cheese dressing also helps the salad hold together on dinner plate. Outstanding!
- 8 ounces cream cheese
- 2 tablespoons orange juice
- 1 tablespoon orange rind, grated
- 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
- 3 cups apples, chopped
- 1 cup celery, chopped
- 1⁄2 cup pecans, chopped
