Thru-The-Garden-And-Orchard Waldorf Salad

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Bone Man

I developed this version of the now-famous salad specifically hoping that someone will adopt it for this year's Recipe*Zaar 2+5 Challenge. This is an upbeat Waldorf Salad that your family will ask you to make again.

Very good. The dressing was great, I used dijon mustard in it and apple cider vinegar. I tossed the apple with the vinegar rather than lemon juice. I made and served all at once without time to sit. I left out the carrots and cauliflower and added arugala and mixed baby greens and used romane lettuce. I also added bacon so DH wouldn't complain about the lack of meat. I think prosciutto would also be good. I served this as a meal by itself and it was very good and filling. I thought maybe some cut up turkey or chicken would be good in it if someone wanted to make it more of a meal. I also thought it would go really well with grilled swiss cheese sandwiches. Very good, I will be making this again, probably never the same way twice. I loved the dressing and will probably be using it on other salads. Not only is it good by quick and easy with ingredients I always have on hand. Thanks so much for posting this great salad.
