Cultured Waldorf Salad


The Waldorf salad is a lovely combination of sweet, savory, and rich ingredients. Using kefir and sour cream, as in this recipe, it comes alive with the tang and probiotics one finds in cultured dairy.


  • 4 red-skinned apples, diced
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup purple grapes, sliced in half
  • 1/3 cup milk kefir
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste
  • Butter head lettuce leaves for serving


Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve scoops of this salad in small butter head lettuce leaves.
