Waldorf Berry Salada

It's an exciting twist on a classic summer salad with celery, toasted walnuts, apples, and mixed berries, all tossed in a creamy dressing - using half and half cream, sour cream and Greek yogurt.

Preparation time: 20 minutes

Yield: 6 servings

1⁄4 cup (60 mL) 10% half-and-half cream

3 tbsp (45 mL) sour cream

3 tbsp (45 mL) Greek yogurt

1 tbsp (15 mL) fresh lemon juice

1-1⁄2 cups (375 mL) diced celery

1 cup (250 mL) toasted walnuts, lightly crushed, divided

1 red delicious apple, cored, quartered and diced (skin on)

1-2/3 cups (400 mL) assorted berries (such as blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, or

quartered strawberries, if large)

Salt and black pepper

8 to 10 whole butter lettuce leaves

10 to 12 celery leaves

1. In a large bowl, stir together cream, sour cream, yogurt, and lemon juice. Stir in celery, 3⁄4

cup (175 mL) of the walnuts and apples. Gently fold in berries. Season to taste with salt and

pepper.

2. In a bowl or on a serving platter, arrange lettuce leaves and gently spoon salad on top.

Garnish with remaining walnuts and celery leaves.

Chef's Tips: For tender and sweeter celery, peel the back part of the celery rib with a

vegetable peeler; this really changes the flavour and nature of celery!

Celery leaves can be found in the heart of the celery.
