“It's sort of like Waldorf Salad, but there's no mayonnaise here, and the end taste is fresh and clean! A nutritious salad for a picnic, or to serve with grilled meats -- or just to enjoy as a light lunch. These great nut oils are now widely available and so much healthier than mayonnaise!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. First whisk the walnut oil, cider vinegar, sugar and salt in a small bowl until the sugar has dissolved, and set aside at room temperature.
  2. Prepare salad ingredients, and toss together in a salad bowl.
  3. Toss with dressing to serve.
  4. (If it has to stand awhile, cover with platic wrap and refrigerate. For taking on a picnic or to-go, keep in a plastic container with tight-fitting lid).
  5. *Toasted walnuts: you can use fresh walnuts, but toasting brings out their fragrance. Heat oven to 350 degF/180 degC, spread walnuts on a cookie tin, and bake for 10 minutes.
