A twist on the tradition Waldorf Salad recipe with shredded turkey, sweetened cranberries, grapes, celery, pecans, apple, and an addictive creme fraiche chive dressing. 

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup crème fraîche

    or sour cream

  • 2 tablespoons Plain whole milk yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar

    or champagne vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon Pure maple syrup

    or honey

  • 1/2 ounce fresh chives

    thinly sliced

  • kosher salt and Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cups shredded cooked turkey or chicken
  • 1 1/2 cups halved grapes
  • 1 cup thinly sliced celery
  • 1 cup diced Fuji apple

    (can use another sweet apple)

  • 1 cup pecans

    toasted

  • 3/4 cup cranberries

    or 1/2 cup cooked cranberry sauce

Instructions

For the cranberries: If you don't have cranberry sauce, you'll have to briefly cook the cranberries. Place the cranberries in a medium pan with 3 tablespoons of the maples syrup or honey and then cook over medium heat until the cranberries just collapse, about 10 minutes. Set aside to cool briefly before using. 

For the dressing: Whisk together the olive oil, creme fraiche, yogurt, vinegar, maple or honey, and a pinch of each salt and pepper. Stir in the chives, taste, and add more salt and pepper, as needed. 

Tip

Dressing can be made without the chives up to 2 days in advance. Stir in the chives just before using. 

For the salad: Toss the turkey in the dressing until it is well coated then divide among serving plates and scatter each with the grapes, celery, apple, pecans, and cranberry and serve.
