On-the-Go Salad

Waldorf salad is a classic fruit and nut salad that makes a great side dish to any meal. By combining its traditional ingredients with a cup of Minute® Ready To Serve microwavable grains, you can take this tasty dish further and enjoy it as a complete meal, in minutes.

This recipe calls for all the traditional ingredients (including apples, celery and walnuts) of a Waldorf salad, plus a few additional ones. You’ll be pleased to know that this recipe is lighter than the original, as we’ve substituted the mayonnaise dressing with vanilla yogurt. This swap also makes it easier to convert this salad into an easy, on-the-go meal. Just grab your lunch box and pack it with the chopped, fresh ingredients, a yogurt cup and a cup of Minute® Ready to Serve Brown Rice & Quinoa.

At lunchtime, just heat the cup of grains and stir in the remaining ingredients. Mix it all until well-blended and top with Cheddar cheese and a few more chopped nuts. It’s easy, fast, delicious and convenient!

Spicy Waldorf

The curry in this recipe adds a warm flavor that’s a game-changer. This robust spice is commonly used in Indian cuisine and the bit of heat it adds to meals is sure to get you hooked.

Make this a protein-packed meal by adding some shredded chicken or diced turkey. Vegetarian? No problem! Use cubed tofu. Try our Rice-Stuffed Eggplant Parmesan for another vegetarian option.
