Turkey Pecan Waldorf Salad
1 c cooked turkey, cut into pieces
2 stalks of celery
1 large crisp apple
1/2 c pecan pieces
1/2 c red grapes, cut in half
For the dressing:
1/4 c plus 2 T mayonnaise (6 T total)
1 1/2 tsp lemon juice
1 T olive oil
salt to taste
a little honey, optional
Chop the celery (I like to include the leaves), and place in a medium mixing bowl. Cut the apple into bite-sized pieces and add to the bowl. Put in the meat and grapes.
To toast the pecan pieces, put them into a dry skillet and heat them on medium heat while stirring. Remove from heat when they start to smell really good. Let them cool, then add them into the salad and mix.
Whisk the ingredients for the dressing together and pour over the salad.
You can substitute raisins or chopped dates for the grapes. Chicken would work in place of turkey. You can also try adding fresh herbs, such as parsley or cilantro for a little more flavor.
