Inspired by Ruby Tuesday's Waldorf. The recipe is identical except for the grapes, the oranges, and possibly the exact type of apple. I also imagine they use regular mayonnaise, sour cream, and sugar. I don't use measurements for this one, so I guesstimated it. I like lots of dressing on mine. See http://www.recipezaar.com/306406 for recipe of the candied pecans.
- 2 cups purple seedless grapes
- 2 granny smith apples
- 2 fuji apples
- 2 celery ribs
- 1 (11 ounce) can mandarin orange sections, drained
- 1⁄2 cup craisins
- 1 cup candied pecans
- 3⁄4 cup light mayonnaise
- 3⁄4 cup light sour cream
- 1 1⁄2 cups Splenda granular
- Rinse and dry grapes and place in a large bowl.
- Rinse and dry the apples. Core apples and cut into twelve to fourteen sections. Chop each section in half and place in the bowl with the grapes.
- Chop the celery stalks into half-centimeter slices and add to the mixture.
- Add mandarin oranges and craisins to the mixture.
- Roughly chop the pecans into halves and quarters and add to the mixture.
- In a separate bowl, combine mayonnaise, sour cream, and Splenda. Pour over the mixture. Toss so that the dressing covers everything and the fruits are well combined. Enjoy!
Looking to add some new salads to the 'company menue' had me give this a trial run - with winning results. Other then using less sweetener (family preference) I made as posted using 'uncandied' pecans - next time around will have your recipe#306406 prepared and ready to go ... and there will be a good many next times for this delicious salad.Thank you Rowenna.
This sounds like a great recipe, but for those interested, Ruby Tuesday Waldorf is quite different. Regular mayo, red delicious apples only, raisins, vanilla, celery, pecans. No sour cream, No sugar, No oranges or grapes.
