I was going to start this recipe off by talking about what a classic American dish the Waldorf Salad is. Its THE perfect refresher snack on a hot day and gobbled up at 4th of July pic-nics. But that isn’t the reason I posted it.
Ok, so…truth be told, I thought of this recipe because I’m obsessed with Gossip Girl. I was watching the season 3 finalé and found myself engulfed with two things: Blair Waldorf and a Waldorf salad. Alas…here’s the most perfect recipe that (I think) exists.
After you've got everything chopped, whisk together the vegan mayo, vinegar, and agave nectar in a large mixing bowl. Add all of the salad ingredients and give it a good shake/toss/mix until everything is evenly coated with the dressing. Chill in the fridge, covered, for about 20 minutes and then serve. Season with salt and pepper if needed.
You can do all kinds of cool combos with this recipe. For example: dried cranberries (soaked and drained) and a mixture of almonds, walnuts, and pecans is a delicious twist on this classic salad. Use your imagination!
