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
 

  • Cook 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 maple syrup or honey and then cook over medium heat until the cranberries just collapse, about 10 minutes. Set aside to cool briefly before using. 
  • Make The Yogurt Dressing: Whisk together the olive oil, crème fraîche, 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. 
  • Assemble The Waldorf 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.
