Author Notes: This is a fresh take on the traditional Waldorf salad using cabbage, apple, Asian pear, and cherry. In this version I am also suggesting the additions of dried mulberries and feta cheese, so it can be a stand alone lunch. I think the sweet dressing pulls this salad altogether. The mint and lemon also lend a freshness to this. This is sized for two conservative servings. Originally conceived as a salad, this can be also be served as the topping on either a roast pork or chicken sandwich. - Sagegreen
- 1 ounce champagne vinegar or pear-infused vinegar
- 2 ounces EVOO (extra virgin olive oil), grapeseed, or walnut oil
- 1 tablespoon acacia honey
- 1 tablespoon homemade cherry or pear preserve (or excellent fruit jam not overly sweetened)
- add the reserve juice from pitting cherries
- 1/4 teaspoon dijon mustard
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/4 teaspoon celery seed
- 1 fresh spearmint leaf, chiffonade then chopped
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- zest of lemon
- Mix the dressing ingredients and shake gently before serving. I suggest 2-3 tablespoons per single serving of salad. This lasts for 2 servings for me.
Cherry Waldorf Salad
- 1/4 cup finely shredded green cabbage
- 1/4 cup finely shredded red cabbage
- 1/2 cup pitted sweet fresh red cherries, chopped
- 1 small green apple, grated
- 1/2 Asian pear, chopped (store the other half in orange juice for a later use if needed)
- the juice of a lemon
- 1/8 cup chopped red onion
- 1/4 teaspoon celery seed
- 2 tablespoons chopped toasted walnuts, almonds, cashews, or pinion pine)
- 2 ounces crumpled feta cheese
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint leaves
- 1 tablespoon chopped flat leaf parsley
- slice of lemon and sprig of mint for garnish
- Pour the lemon juice over the chopped pear and apple right after it is grated.
- Assemble the salad ingredients, reserving the mint and parsley. Toss gently with 2-3 tablespoons of the dressing, to your taste. Top with the fresh chopped herbs. Garnish with lemon and mint. Serve as a salad or on top of roast chicken or pork in sandwiches.
