Chicken Waldorf Salad

Waldorf salad with grilled chicken

Waldorf salad is a classic salad created at the famed Waldorf Hotel in New York City sometime around 1893. This recipe is an updated version made with Greek yoghurt and pumped up with protein to make it a more substantial weeknight dinner.

I love salads and often make them for dinner year-round, but I do find that adding some form of lean protein makes it feel more like ‘dinner’ around here. Of course, if you want a meatless salad, you can leave out the chicken entirely.

I like to use green apple for this dish, I like the sour apple with the sweet grapes, but red apple works well too.

The classic Waldorf salad recipe calls for full-fat mayonnaise only, but I prefer the freshness and tang provided by the yoghurt and the substantially lower calorie count! You can poach your chicken and mix the dressing up well in advance or even the day before to make the assembly of this salad even quicker. Any leftovers can be made into chicken salad sandwiches the next day!
