Jenny’s Sweet Waldorf Salad

I couldn’t ever find the perfect Waldorf salad – one that wasn’t too mayonaise-y tasting, yet one that still held enough of the original flavor to be called a Waldorf. So I mixed and matched and experimented, and finally came up with a perfect twist on the classic Waldorf Salad recipe. Now I get requests for it at every family get together!

You will need:

  • 2 Granny Smith apples, cored and diced
  • 1 Red Delicious apple, cored and diced
  • 1 Asian pear, cored and cubed
  • 1 stalk celery, diced
  • ½ cup sliced almonds
  • 1 cup golden raisins
  • 1 cup seedless green grapes, halved
  • 1 ½ cups sweetened dried cranberries
  • 1 ¼ cups plain yogurt
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar
  • ¾ cup mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon


In a large bowl, combine the Granny Smith apples, Red Delicious apple, Asian pear, celery, almonds, golden raisins, grapes and cranberries. In a separate bowl, stir together the yogurt, white sugar, brown sugar, mayonnaise, lemon juice and cinnamon. Pour the dressing over the fruit mixture and stir gently until evenly coated.
