Turkey Waldorf Salad

The Waldorf salad has been a favorite American dish since the turn of the 20th Century, but the original mayonnaise-smothered recipe was in need of a makeover to fit into a healthier modern diet. This refreshingly lean version made with crunchy apples, celery, walnuts sweet grapes, and turkey breast is lightened by blending yogurt with a touch of mayonnaise to make a creamy sauce that stays true to the flavor of the original. The result is a salad you’ll want to eat again and again.

This is a perfect way to use leftover turkey meat, or substitute chicken. Serve on lettuce, or use the whole lettuce leaves to make lettuce cups.
