Light & Lively Waldorf Salad

Our lightened-up Waldorf salad replaces the high-fat mayonnaise with a tangy, orange-laced dressing dusted with nutmeg. It’s refreshing and very tasty! If you like it more tangy, splash on more NAKANO. Add cooked chicken to make a main dish salad.

For a real twist on Waldorf salad use summer fruit instead of apples. Firm peaches and nectarines--diced and tossed with NAKANO seasoned rice vinegar, orange zest and nutmeg--makes a delicious summertime salad. 


2 Tbsp. NAKANO Seasoned Rice Vinegar Original
Grated zest of 1 orange
Dash nutmeg
2 red-skinned sweet apples, about 1 lb. (gala, fuji, red delicious) 
1 large stalk celery, sliced
1/3 cup toasted walnuts
Lettuce leaves, Boston, bibb or red leaf


In a medium bowl stir together seasoned rice vinegar, orange zest and a generous sprinkle of nutmeg. Core and slice apples. Cut into smaller pieces and stir into bowl with dressing. Stir in celery and walnuts. Line salad plates with lettuce and spoon apple mixture on top.

Makes 4 servings.

Note: Try 2 Tbsp. currants or dried cranberries, or 1/2 cup fresh grapes, halved, for a sweet addition to our lightened-up Waldorf salad.
