Smoked Salmon Waldorf

I'm so easy to please...just give me food and I'm a happy camper. This week, I received food gifts from my friends--talk about the gift of friendship! I will be making posts for the other stuff I received but this afternoon I chose to prepare half of the smoked salmon that I got. So I was thinking what to do with it, honestly speaking, I can eat smoked salmon on its own but my friend said, make something with it and give her the recipe...

It's a lazy Saturday afternoon and I didn't want to be bothered going to the supermarket so I looked in the chiller and decided that based on the ingredients on hand, I could make a Waldorf Salad. Except that I won't be using chicken...I will be using the smoked salmon.

I wanted to make this salad more healthy so instead of mayonnaise (aside from the fact, that I didn't have it at home) I used Greek yogurt. I sprinkled about a teaspoon of sugar to balance the tartness of the yogurt. This is how easy it is...I flaked the salmon, added some chopped celery, grapes, and fuji apples and topped it with my yogurt-sugar mixture....looking good so far...
...oops wait, I almost forgot to add walnuts and I also had some dried goji berries on hand so I added that as well. Mix it all together gently...

...and voila--Smoked Salmon Waldorf Salad! I love how easy it is to make and how perfect it is for lazy Saturday afternoons when the farthest thing from my mind is to slave over a hot stove!

So thank you gorjuschik for the Smoked Salmon and thank you for the gift of friendship! And stay tuned for the recipe of the other half :)

I would never, ever have thought of adding salmon to a Waldorf salad, but it makes complete sense and looks fantastic! I know if you made it - it's definitely good!
