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
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
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.
