Waldorf Salad

Oh me and my salads!  The end of the school year approaching and swimming lessons beginning signals my brain that it's time for variety of chilled salad recipes.  My 'fridge is officially packed with this salad and this one.  My latest salad creation, this vegan Waldorf Salad, might not make it to the 'fridge, however.

A traditional Waldorf salad, established in the late 1800's out of New York's famous Waldorf-Astoria hotel, contains apples, raisins, mayonnaise and sometimes chicken.  This vegan version is tangy, sweet and crunchy-definitely not lacking in flavor!

Waldorf Salad
serves 4

1 C. halved red grapes
1/2 C. thinly sliced celery
1/2 C. diced yellow bell peppers
1/2 C. roughly chopped walnuts
1/4 C. vegan mayonnaise
2 tsp. agave nectar
1/2 tsp. lemon juice
sea salt to taste

1.  In a medium bowl, combine grapes, celery, peppers and walnuts.  
2.  Whisk together mayo, agave nectar, lemon juice and salt in a small bowl and pour over the grape mixture.  Toss well to combine.  

Serve stuffed inside a pita pocket, on top of a bed of greens or rolled up inside a large swiss chard or romaine leaf.
