I've been working like a crazy person this week, which is a good thing. The shop was closed for five days during the recent fires, so I sure wasn't earning any money. So, with putting in the extra hours, I haven't been spending too much time at my sewing machine. What I did do a week or so ago, was to make this yummy Waldorf Salad with some fresh apples. It was well received by the family and I thought I'd share the recipe with you.
4 assorted apples (Honey Crisp, Gala, Granny Smith, Fuji, chopped (not peeled)
1 Asian pear (chopped, not peeled)
1 small bunch of red grapes, maybe 1 cup. I cut my grapes in half
3 stalks celery, chopped
3/4 cup dried cranberries
3/4 cup chopped walnuts
Combine items listed above in a bowl. Squeeze the juice of one lemon over all.
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 T. granulated sugar
1 T. Gravenstein Apple White Balsamic*
Combine and toss over salad. Chill at least one hour before serving.
*The Gravenstein Apple White Balsamic is kind of a trick ingredient, that most of you will not have access to. Any white balsamic will do (do not use a dark balsamic-it will turn your salad an unappetizing grey color). If you can't find a white balsamic, just omit that ingredient, and taste to see if you need to add more sugar to the dressing.
