I have tried, time and time again, to get into blue cheese.
I tried it on fancy sesame crackers.
I tried it with bacon, back when I dabbled in calling myself a carnivore.
I even tried it on a fancy open faced sandwich.
But, try as I might, I just can't get into it. So, for this Blue Moon Waldorf Salad, I decided to save my pretty pennies and skip the blue cheese part altogether.
I hope you can forgive me for this major deviation from the written recipe.
I started by dicing up a crunchy apple and a juuuust right pear.
I know that pear looks a little janky.
But it was divine.
I sought out bits of it when I tasted this salad.
So juicy. So fine.
Don't judge a pear by its skin!
The fruit got mixed up with raisins, minced celery, toasted walnuts, and a big splash of fresh lemon juice. Then the dressing: plain yogurt, a touch of mayo, and a touch of honey. That's it! No spices. No salt. Just a simple salad for your enjoyment.
Check it out folks!
This is the last of the four Moosewood Waldorf variations. I really enjoyed all four of them ... it's hard to choose a favorite!
Here are the other three Waldorfs:
