Waldorf Salad

Browsing through Kevin's blog , I found this wonderful salad recipe . I knew I had to try it out..easy to prepare yet refreshing and yummilicious. I added 2 more items to his original recipe, grapefruit for I am a fan of grapefruit….sweet, sourish and the bitter after taste adds oomph to the salad and shredded cheddar cheese ….hmmm it was one good salad that I will want to make again and again :) The salad is full of vitamins and minerals goodness… and you also get the different tastebud at one mouthful…nutty from the roasted walnuts , sweetness from the cranberries and apple , crunchiness from the celery and sourness and bitterness from the grapefruit…well what do you think ? Of course it was good :))))

This salad goes well with the fried chicken we had for dinner. Excellent combo and the Piggies clan love it! I would like to thank Kevin for sharing such a wonderful salad recipe.
