I’ve taken a liking to the Waldorf salad, so I thought I’d try one from Gordon Ramsay’s collection. This recipe is quite similar to the last one I shared, but the dressing is slightly different. Whatever the variety, I enjoy these salads because they’ve got some decent protein in them from the shrimp and they’ve got some sweetness in them from the grapes. I just love that.
There aren’t many ingredients in this salad and what it does include is easy to find at the grocery store. The recipe calls for some romaine lettuce, apple, grapes, shrimp and walnuts for the salad itself and then some Greek yogurt, apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, salt and pepper for the dressing. It’s a great tasting and very filling salad, as far as salads go.
For the Salad
1/3 Cup Walnuts, Crushed and Toasted
1 Small Head Romaine Lettuce, Sliced Thin
1 Pound Cooked Shrimp, Peeled
4 Celery Stalks, Sliced into Thin Rounds
2 Red Apples, Cored and Chopped into Bite Size Pieces
2 Cups Red and Green Grapes, Halved
For the Dressing
1/2 Cup Greek Yogurt
2 Teaspoons Dijon Mustard
1 Teaspoon Apple Cider Vinegar
1 Teaspoon Lemon Juice
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/4 Teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
I’d like to thank Gordon Ramsay for this recipe. This is another stellar salad from this gentleman and I’m looking forward to many more.
Combine & Toss Ingredients
This salad is so easy to put together. First throw half the walnuts, the lettuce, shrimp, celery, apples and grapes in a large bowl.
Then, mix everything together.
Make the Dressing
In a medium sized bowl, combine the Greek yogurt, dijon mustard, vinegar, lemon juice, salt and pepper and mix everything together well. Then, add the dressing to the salad and toss it until the salad ingredients are coated with the dressing.
Plate & Serve
When completed, divide the salad between plates. Sprinkle the remaining walnuts over the salad and serve. Enjoy!
