Waldorf salad. Made with a reduced fat, reduced calorie dressing. Easy and quick to make up in the morning as a packed lunch or as a healthy snack.
Folks, I think you’re just going to love my new lower fat version of the classic waldorf salad.
I wanted to prove to you that you can substitute the heavy full fat mayonnaise original Waldorf salad dressing with a lighter one, without ruining the taste.
I also felt it was time to switch from having soup most days for lunch and to show you some of my favourite salad recipes, like this healthy salad!
You see apparently it’s coming into summer here in Scotland.
We’ve yet to see much of the sun, or to feel its warmth, but hey, I’m grateful that the temperature has at least moved into double digits!
So as long as it’s warmer look out for lots more healthy salad recipes to come.
