A touch of honey gives this simple salad a bit of sweetness while chopped apple and celery provide crunch. Best of all, it takes mere minutes to toss together for a quick lunch or side dish.—Barbara McFeters, Aurora, Oregon
I came up with this recipe when I promised to bring a potato salad to a picnic but had no regular potatoes on hand. The sweet potatoes were there, so I revised by regular potato salad recipe and a new dish was born! Adding the apples was an extra touch and everybody loved it.
This is a combination of two different salads that my children liked when they were growing up. It probably originated when I was making one or the other of the salads and didn't have enough apples or bananas to make the amount of salad I needed.
This appealing recipe puts a healthy spin on classic Waldorf salad. Crunchy apples, celery and pecans, juicy pineapples and chewy raisins are dressed with reduced-fat mayonnaise and sour cream. Janice Smith of Cynthiana, Kentucky suggests serving the salad in a lettuce-lined bowl.
A dash of cayenne adds zip to this classic cool and crispy salad. “Blue cheese provides extra richness,” notes Renee Aupperle of Lititz, Pennsylvania. “It’s great for a buffet; everyone who tries it loves it.”
