Your Favorite Red And Green Fruits Make For A Festive Salad!

5 Minutes Is All You Need To Make This Easy Christmas Side Dish

Christmas Eve dinner is an important tradition in my extended family. As long as I can remember, we would head over to my grandma’s house for a special dinner on Christmas Day. On Christmas Eve our family would enjoy a special Christmas meal together before heading to vigil church.

Both sides of my family are a mixed group of English and Finnish heritage, and this heritage influences our cuisine greaty. Christmas Eve and New Years’ Eve feature some traditional English entrees: rib roast, Yorkshire pudding, and crispy potatoes!

Traditionally, the Waldorf salad consists of chopped apples, walnuts, celery, all stirred together in mayonnaise. It can be served over lettuce to get some veggies in your system, or  it’s delicious on its own. However, I’m personally not a big fan of the mayonnaise because it’s so fatty. Honestly, during the holidays, I’d rather spend those calories on cookies, cupcakes, and candy canes after our meal.

Instead of using mayo, my mom replaces it with fat-free Greek yogurt! The Greek yogurt offers a creamy texture similar to that of the original Waldorf salad without the calories and fat, and it has a little bit of tang to it just like mayo would.


Quick Tip: I like the red and green skin on the apples for the Christmas season, but you can always peel them away if it bothers you!
