Waldorf Salad Mold

Total Time

Prep: 25 min. + chilling


12 servings

When I was growing up, my mother would make Waldorf salad during the holiday season using Red Delicious apples. This version is a nice timesaver because you can prepare it ahead of time without worrying about the apples browning. —Susan Brown, Northglenn, Colorado


  • 2 packages (3 ounces each) strawberry gelatin
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 1-1/2 cups cold water
  • 2 medium apples, diced
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 3/4 cup lemon yogurt
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • Dash to 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. In a large bowl, dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Stir in cold water. Cover and refrigerate until partially set, about 1-1/2 hours. Fold in the apples, celery and walnuts. Pour into a 6-cup ring mold coated with cooking spray. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours or until set.
  2. For dressing, combine the yogurt, brown sugar, salt and cinnamon; chill until serving. To serve, unmold salad onto a platter. Serve with dressing.
