Easy Waldorf Salad

Serves 6 Rated:

I love salads. All of them. Unless they are a handful of 'bagged' greens thrown on a plate in a restaurant and called a salad. (Just sayin'...been there one too many times!)

I often have house guests, the hazard of having a big extended family who live far and wide and I have to say that having people stay often makes me get a wriggle on with cooking something that I can claim as a new recipe for here. It is weird being down to just two of us in the household now. I can make a meal on a Monday and it could potentially last us all week...but I digress. So when I had my in-laws recently, it was the perfect opportunity to get all inspired and lucky you, this happened. It may show up in a book, it is so good.

You will need to go and make the Maple Mayonnaise first on this one. You could use your normal Easy Thermomix Mayonnaise if you wanted, but I do like the sweetness that this mayo adds to the salad.

Either way, YUM.

  • 1/2 Batch Maple Mayonnaise Maple Mayonnaise
  • 300 Grams red cabbage, in pieces
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 2 fennel bulbs, in pieces
  • Handfuls hazelnuts, roasted
  • Handfuls craisins, (dried cranberries)
  • Handfuls dried cherries
  • 1 green apple, diced
  • 5 celery stalks, thinly sliced
  • Handfuls fresh dill
  • pink salt flakes pink salt flakes to taste BUY
  • freshly cracked black pepper to tate
  • 150 Grams Greek yoghurt



Prepare mayonnaise and remove from the Thermomix bowl. Without cleaning the bowl (leave a little bit of mayo in there) add the cabbage, red onion and fennel bulbs. Chop 3 sec/speed 5. Check for size of the chop, and add another second if you feel you would like it a little finer. The chop size will depend very much on the amount of mayonnaise left in the bowl.


Remove chopped vegies from the Thermomix bowl and place into a large mixing bowl.


Add nuts, fruit, celery, dill and seasoning and toss gently with the additional mayonnaise as needed.


Serve dolloped with the yoghurt.
