I am a sucker for a waldorf salad in the fall. I don’t really know why, maybe it’s because my grandmother used to make it so it has a certain nostalgia factor or maybe because it’s just delicious!
Since we have a treasure trove of apples from our trip to the orchard last week I decided to send Kash with a deconstructed waldorf salad for lunch. It’s a fast lunch to put together, wholesome and its pretty darn delicious!
This recipe isn’t just for kids – give it a whirl yourself, you just might dig it too!
- 1/4 cup cubed apple slices, I used a combo tart and sweet apples
- 1/8 cup toasted walnuts
- 1/8 cup sliced celery
- 1/4 cup sliced grapes
- 1/4 cup cubed rotisserie chicken
- side of dressing, optional I sent ours with ranch instead of the traditional mayo based dressing in a waldorf
- Layer the ingredients in the lunchbox and pack along with an ice pack so that the ingredients stay nice and cool until lunch.
