Composed Waldorf Salad

The traditional fruit and nut salad just got a serious makeover.

You're familiar with Waldorf Salad, but have you ever seen it quite so...composed? Here, organized sections keep purple grapes, romaine hearts, apples, celery, and walnuts in their own corners. It's a dream for any picky eaters who happen to be joining you for Thanksgiving dinner, and it's just downright delicious. Win-win!


  • 1/4 c. sour cream

  • 2 tbsp. mayonnaise

  • 2 tbsp. white wine vinegar

  • 1 tbsp. Dijon mustard

  • 1 1/2 tsp. pure honey

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • 1 (5-ounce) package romaine hearts, leaves separated

  • 1/2 small head red leaf lettuce, leaves torn

  • 3 stalks celery, thinly sliced

  • 2 apples, thinly sliced

  • 1 c. seedless purple grapes, halved

  • 1/2 c. toasted walnuts, chopped

  • 1/4 c. pomegranate seeds


  1. Whisk together sour cream, mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard, and honey in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Toss lettuces with half of dressing, reserving remaining. Arrange on a platter and top with celery, apples, grapes, walnuts, and pomegranate seeds. Drizzle with reserved dressing.
