Simple Waldorf Salad

This is my go-to salad when I need a quick little something for a meal. When I want a sweeter taste, I use whipped cream instead of yogurt. —Wendy Masters, East Garafraxa, Ontario

    Love this basic Waldorf salad. Sometimes, due to ingredients on hand or just for a different taste, I use different dried fruits. and nuts Ie., blueberries, cherries, cranberries, pecans, almonds, etc., And, I have also used sour cream instead of plain yogurt.
