Recipe Of The Day: Waldorf Salad

Quentin Bacon/Food&Wine

Most Waldorf salad recipes, while delicious, aren't exactly what you'd call light. They're a combination of apples, celery and walnuts held together with a hefty serving of mayonnaise. There's definitely a time and a place for this salad, but in the middle of summer it's not exactly what we're craving. Though when it comes with a lighter twist, a Waldorf salad recipe is exactly what we want.

This Waldorf salad recipe skips the mayonnaise-based dressing and replaces it with a lemony vinaigrette that's flavored with walnut oil. There's also a mix of mineral-rich romaine lettuce, frisée and sliced radishes added to the classic apples, celery and walnuts combination.
