Curried Waldorf Salad

Prep Time: 25 min
Cook Time: 25 min
Serves: 4

This is a combination of two classic salads: the Waldorf and the curried chicken salad. On the one hand you get the fruit and nut flavours from the Waldorf and then the subtle smokiness from the curry powder. All of these are mixed together with a low fat yogurt dressing and paired with sweet roasted peppers and crunchy iceberg lettuce. We love layering this salad in one large or four individual mason jars for a stunning presentation.


1/2 head iceberg lettuce, chopped
2 roasted red pepper(s), sliced
1 chicken breast(s), cooked, chopped into 1/2-inch pieces
1/3 cup (75 mL) plain yogurt, non-fat or low fat
1 tbsp (15 mL) curry powder
1/4 Granny Smith apple(s), medium, diced into ½-inch pieces
2 tbsp (30 mL) raisins
2 tbsp (30 mL) walnuts, chopped
3 cups (750 mL) crusty bread, cubed
lemon wedges


1 In a medium bowl, combine the chopped chicken, plain yogurt, curry powder, apple, raisins and walnuts. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
2 In a large serving dish layer the ingredients starting with the lettuce and roasted red peppers. Top with the chicken Waldorf salad and finally the cubed crusty bread.
3 Serve immediately or up to 3 hours after assembling. Can be served cold or at room temperature. Garnish with lemon wedges.
