Edamame Waldorf Salad


Luxurious settings accompanied my first bite of Waldorf Salad in Tokyo. Equally luscious and rich, I created a  more healthy, less calorie version. My Edamame Waldorf Salad is inspired by the lovely Endive Apple Salad from Adrianna's Best Recipes

  • ½ cup light (reduced calorie) mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 4 cups of assorted greens (a spring mix is lovely)
  • ½ cup edamame soybeans
  • ½ large green Anjou pear
  • ½ Fuji apple
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 4 dates, minced
  • ¼ ~ ½ cup dried cranberries
  • handful of seedless purple grapes
  • handful of pecans


Whisk the mayo and yogurt together in a bowl.

Divide 2 cups of spring mix salad into 2 big bowls.

Cut the pear and apple into slices and/or bite-size pieces. Sprinkle with lemon juice.
Toss together with the remaining ingredients. Coat the combined yummies with the mayonnaise yogurt mixture.

OR Place a dollop of the mayo yogurt mix on top of the assorted greens. Serve the remaining mayonnaise and yogurt in a small dipping bowl.  Arrange the ingredients on a plate so each person can build a DIY Edamame Waldorf Salad.
