Holiday Waldorf Salad

This salad always seems to be a perfect accompaniment with a holiday meal, whether the main entrée is turkey, pork or beef. The red apples, green celery, brown walnuts and dark raisins give it a festive quality on your holiday plate. An added plus is the high nutrient quality of the ingredients. This recipe decreases the amount of fat in the traditional recipe by substituting light mayonnaise, nonfat mayonnaise or nonfat yogurt.

2 cups apples with red skin, diced
1 cup celery, finely diced
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
1/2 cup dark seedless raisins
1/3 cup light or fat free mayonnaise, or nonfat yogurt
1-2 Tbsp. lemon juice

Toss apples in lemon juice. Add other ingredients and toss with the mayonnaise or yogurt. Makes 6 servings, approximately 3/4 cup each.
