California Waldorf Salad

We love this flavorful update of the American classic with a perfect balance of crisp apples, juicy grapes, sweet raisins and crunchy walnuts. The original Waldorf Salad was created more than a century ago at the legendary Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City, and its ingredients were just apples, celery and mayonnaise. Our version has a lively West Coast flair that includes tender baby spinach and a lighter dressing.
