Whenever Luci Knepper of Salem, Ohio takes this colorful salad to a ladies luncheon, she gets compliments. "Even my son loves this...and he doesn't care for either cheese or sour cream. The apples add interest and a little crunch...and you can easily substitute cooked chicken for the turkey," she suggests.
Peanut butter in the dressing and interesting ingredients like marshmallows and mixed nuts give this Waldorf salad a tasty twist. I've tried versions without the peanut butter, but this is my favorite.

Company was on the way, and I realized I'd forgotten to buy salad ingredients—epic fail! I scavenged the kitchen to come up with the right blend of ingredients, and created an instant favorite. You can use any type of apple but Galas are my favorite. —Kelly Walsh, Aviston, Illinois
This tart and tasty salad goes so wonderfully with lots of different meals. Folks will think you slaved over it, but with less than five ingredients, preparation takes only minutes! Crunchy walnuts, celery and apples are special way to dress up canned sauce. —Lucille Foster
This elegant salad is perfect beside a centerpiece turkey or lamb. With the crunch of walnuts, sweetness of cinnamon and fresh-picked goodness of apples, it will become a holiday staple.—Lynn Silva, San Diego, CA
Now that my six children are grown, I make lots of small-portion meals. This tasty salad is one of my favorite recipes because it’s colorful, a little different and it contains healthy ingredients.—Anne Stevens, Lake Charles, Louisiana
