Out-for-Lunch Waldorf Salad with Apples & Pecans

Out-for-Lunch Waldorf Salad with Apples & Pecans

Holistic Nutritionist Jesse Lane shares her healthy twist on a classic Waldorf Salad. Check it out - perfect for lunches on the patio or get togethers with friends! 

Out-for-lunch waldorf salad reminds me of getting all dressed up and going out for a nice lunch with my girlfriends. The health benefits of the ingredients leave you feeling light and refreshed, while satiating your salad cravings. I always loved Waldorf salad growing up, however my stomach was not always a fan of the creamy dressing, so I decided to make a healthy, mayo-free version that all can enjoy. The creamy honey dressing tastes so good with the tart apples and crunchy celery, and the best part is that it can be made in under 15 minutes!
