This fresh and brightly coloured Waldorf salad is my healthy spin on the traditional version, which is less green and often full of a heavier mayo dressing. This greener and lighter version has a lovely crunch from the celery and sweet apples, but the best part is the tart yogurt dressing, which is so delicious and really what makes this salad so great. I also love the colourful look of it, which makes such a festive and beautiful addition to a table setting.
