A nice blend of colorful fruits and nuts gives this refreshing salad a great flavor and tempting texture. "The citrusy topping dresses it up perfectly," notes Marie Engwall of Willmar, Minnesota. "It's hard to believe something so easy to fix can be this tasty and attractive."
A small-quantity salad can still be special, as this recipe proves. "I like the crisp apple, crunchy celery and chewy dried cranberries in a delightful dressing," says DeLoris Nance from Auburn, Washington.
A light, lovely pink salad, this recipe puts a different spin on traditional Waldorf salad. It is super served with roast turkey or baked ham. People always go back for seconds. My family didn't think they liked cranberries until they tried this sweet crunchy salad.

While I was growing up on a farm in western Kansas, we always had lots of hungry men around during harvesttime. This salad is one we served often since it was easy to increase and we could prepare it ahead of time.
When I was growing up, my mother would make Waldorf salad during the holiday season using Red Delicious apples. This version is a nice time-saver because you can prepare it ahead of time without the worry of the apples browning.
