Waldorf Salad - Apples, Dates, Celery, Pecans, Sour Cream

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Pesto lover

This is great for hot days - no mayo! It's different from the usual waldorf. I serve it in clear plastic drink cups at picnics and barbecues, as a dessert. This is the basic recipe. You can add 1/2 c shredded, sweetened coconut if you like, or pineapple tidbits, or both!

This was more a dessert type salad to us. I loved the dates & pecans. Both added to the flavor & made the dish special. I used Jonagold apples and added a teaspoon of lemon to help prevent browning. Thank you for sharing the recipe. Made for the Let's PARTY event.
