Waldorf Salad

This salad will brighten up the darkest days. It is light and refreshing and will work well as a starter or light lunch.

Suitable for maintenance and levels 1,2 and 3

Health Bite: An apple a day keeps the doctor away! There is great wisdom in those words. Apples are high in potassium and vitamin C, rich in plant compounds and the pectin content makes them a great form of soluble fibre. Which in all, makes apples way up there in the health department!
