We eat many of our salads ‘naked’ without dressing. I recommend not pouring all the dressing onto the salad instead, only add as much as you usually like to dress your salads.  And to remember to pour the dressing just prior to serving.

I have added chicken to this salad to make a nice weekend lunch, however you can leave out the chicken to serve this tropical fresh salad as a side for your next BBQ!

Kat, if I am going anywhere and need a salad, I make my version of the Waldorf salad. It is simple and you can vary it. A lot of people my age don’t eat nuts, so I stick with the apple and celery always, but may use cheese for that third ingredient. Or, mango, or pineapple, or whatever. Mix the three ingredients in with whole egg mayo. Soooooo easy. Of course, all ingredients are diced small. i usually bring home an empty bowl.

You know Les, I have never had a Waldorf Salad, but it sounds delicious and I have always wanted to try it!

This look delicous, and a bit unexpected with the mango. I’m going to pin this to try when mangos are in season. Thanks.
