Transforming Leftovers – Wintry Waldorf Chicken Salad

This wintry salad has a delightfully surprising tart note.

Here’s a winter time take on a fall classic. I started with this Chicken Waldorf Salad Recipe and tweaked it to fit what I had in the house. Had I had any salad greens or lettuce, I would have served it as a green salad. But I didn’t, so it got served neat.

Wintry Waldorf Chicken Salad serves 4
Salad:
1 medium apple (sweet or tart), unpeeled, chopped
2 cups cooked chicken, diced (I used leftover roast chicken)
1 large carrot, chopped
1 stalk celery, chopped
1 green onion, diced
1/2 cup crispy walnuts, coarsely chopped

Dressing:
3/4 cup yogurt
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 T lemon juice
Juice of 1/2 orange (about 1/4 cup)
1/4 teaspoon sea salt

  1. Combine the salad ingredients in a medium bowl.
  2. In a small bowl, combine dressing ingredients and whisk together.
  3. Gently fold dressing into salad.
  4. Serve over mild greens.
