Creamy Coconut Waldorf Salad

Since salads are my favorite foods, I am constantly taking old recipes and reworking them to fit my Gluten Free Vegan diet and my tastes for that day.

That is how I created this Apple Coconut Waldorf Salad recipe.  I had most of the ingredients on hand, but I wanted something a bit different than the traditional Waldorf salad.

Creamy Coconut Waldorf Salad

Apple Coconut Waldorf Salad1 cup sliced celery
2 cups sliced apple
½ cup coarsely chopped walnuts and/or cashew
½ cup raisins
1/3 cup shredded coconut
1/3 cup of grapeseed oil vegenaise (or more if needed) thinned with 1 – 2 tablespoons of coconut milk

Mix the celery, apple, nuts, raisins and coconut in a medium bowl and set aside.

Pour vegenaise and coconut milk in a smaller bowl and mix until well blended.  Add coconut milk as needed until you reach the consistence you want for your salad.

Mix the dressing into the prepared veggies, fruit and nut.


I love the different textures in this recipe:  sweet, crunchy, creamy.  The raisins sweeten the salad; the extra coconut and coconut milk give it a wonderful creamy texture; and the nuts and the celery gives the salad an extra crunch!

So simple to make — Great tasting and healthy as well!
