This is a fantastic recipe. I'm so happy that I finally got around to making it after having it sitting in my cookbook for a long time :0)
We used golden delicious apples and bartlet pears. The results were terrific. I did cheat a bit by using vanilla flavored yogurt, but I'm glad I did, it's better than using mayo. :)
4 Stars, nice tasting salad, but this needs perfectly ripe pears to taste its best. I boiled the cider for 15 minutes, and ended up with easily solidified cider (like a lollipop). I had difficulty blending my cider into the yogurt, even using my food processor. My first purchase of Bosc pears went bad, and I didn't have time to let the new batch ripen, so please keep that in mind. I used Granny Smith apples, but I believe nicely ripened pears are the key to your enjoyment. Made for Healthy Choices.
This is an excellent salad, very refreshing and tasty, not to mention healthful--just great for a summer meal. The dressing is wonderful and I enjoyed the additionn of the pears, too. I did substitute craisins. I'll be making my waldorf salad this way again. Made for recipe swap#18,
THANK YOU!!!! I could live off of this recipe for the rest of my life. I used Braeburn Apples and D'Anjou pears and have made it with dark raisins and sultanas. You cannot beat this. Everyone in the house loved it and I have printed out about 3 copies and passed them around as well. Thanks again!
This is very different from the norm and delicious. The cider in combination with the yogurt gives a light clean taste and the cinnamon is just perfect. I made this with Gala apples and Red D"Anjou pear. Not having the Boston lettuce, it was served on top of baby spinach. Made for *PAC Spring 2008*
