Waldorf Berry Salad_480

Preparation time: 20 minutes

Yield: 6 servings

An exciting twist on a classic summer salad. Celery, toasted walnuts, apples, mixed berries, all tossed in a creamy dressing – using half and half cream, sour cream and Greek yogurt. Chef’s Tips: For tender and sweeter celery, peel the back part of the celery rib with a vegetable peeler; this really changes the flavour and nature of celery!

 

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup (60 mL) 10% half-and-half cream
  • 3 tbsp (45 mL) sour cream
  • 3 tbsp (45 mL) Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) fresh lemon juice
  • 1-½ cups (375 mL) diced celery
  • 1 cup (250 mL) toasted walnuts, lightly crushed, divided
  • 1 red delicious apple, cored, quartered and diced (skin on)
  • 1-2/3 cups (400 mL) assorted berries (such as blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, or quartered strawberries, if large)
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 8 to 10 whole butter lettuce leaves
  • 10 to 12 celery leaves (Celery leaves can be found in the heart of the celery.)

Method

  1. In a large bowl, stir together cream, sour cream, yogurt, and lemon juice. Stir in celery, ¾ cup (175 mL) of the walnuts and apples. Gently fold in berries. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  2. In a bowl or on a serving platter, arrange lettuce leaves and gently spoon salad on top. Garnish with remaining walnuts and celery leaves.
