Light Waldorf Salad

Several years ago I found Waldorf salad and really enjoyed it. However now I cannot even recall what was in it. :D A couple of years ago I tried the waldorf salad in the THM cookbook. Prior to THM (Trim Healthy Mama) I would never have even given it a second thought because two of its main ingredients are cottage cheese and celery, neither of which are items I like. :D

Early in my THM journey, I was astounded to find that I could actually tolerate, and even like cottage cheese . . .  well, when it is blended. ;) I also found that if I dice up the celery small enough, it isn’t horrible if it isn’t being eaten alone. So when I saw this waldorf salad, I decided to give it a try. Now it is a favorite light lunch of mine.

Start by dicing an apple. To do so, I start by cutting it in half, pole to pole. Then I use a metal melon baller and remove the core from the center.

Cut out the stem and blossom end.

Cut each half into about 8 slices.

Then chop.

Put that in a bowl along with two stalks of finely diced celery and 1 cup of lowfat cottage cheese.

Finally chop up a couple of walnuts and add it to the bowl, with a bit of salt and a tablespoon or so of sweetener. I like things sweet so I use about 1-2 tablespoons of gentle sweet. ;)

Stir it all up and enjoy! :)

Light Waldorf Salad


  • 1 apple, diced
  • 2 stalks celery, finely diced
  • 1 cup low fat cottage cheese
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons chopped walnuts
  • salt to taste
  • sweetener to taste (I use about 1-2 tablespoons gentle sweet)


  1. Combine all in a bowl and enjoy. 🙂

The original recipe used spicy nuts, black pepper, and chili pepper flakes too but I don’t prefer spicy, so I leave out the spiciness. :)

I hope you enjoy this light lunch. :)

Until next time, God bless,
