Creamy Apple, Celery and Grape Salad

Creamy Apple, Celery and Grape Salad

Serves 4 to 6

This vegan riff on Waldorf salad is deliciously rich and crunchy. Instead of chopping the romaine lettuce, you can also use whole leaves to line a bowl or platter and serve the salad on top.

  • Cashew-naise:
  • 1 cup whole raw cashews
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon powdered mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon Bragg Liquid Aminos
  • Salad:
  • 3 tart apples, such as Granny Smith, cored and diced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 3 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1 cup seedless grapes, halved
  • 1 head romaine lettuce, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons chopped walnuts

For the cashew-naise, put cashews in a container, add cold water to cover by an inch; cover the container and refrigerate overnight. Drain cashews and rinse under cold water. Place soaked cashews in a blender and add vinegar, mustard, turmeric, liquid aminos and 3/4 cup water. Blend until very smooth, 1 to 2 minutes.

For salad, in a large bowl, toss apples with lemon juice. Toss again with celery, grapes and cashew-naise. Chill at least 1 hour and up to 1 day.

To serve, place lettuce onto a large platter or individual serving plates and top with apple mixture. Sprinkle with walnuts.
