Whole Food Wednesday – Not Another Waldorf Salad Recipe!

Welcome to Whole Food Wednesdays. I think I’m about to start a trend because for the third week in a row I’m going to post yet another salad recipe: The Waldorf Salad. Now I know what you’re thinking, there’s nothing exciting going on here. It may not be the most innovative creation but it is a wonderful winter salad. This salad is simple and allows all the natural flavors to come through.

So a little history lesson for you. The Waldorf Salad was developed in and around the 1890’s, but the addition of walnuts did not come until the 1930s. So, traditionally the recipe was made of apples, celery, walnuts and a mayonnaise dressing served on a bed of lettuce. All kinds of variations now exist including chicken, turkey, grapes and yogurt for the dressing.  So I won’t be the first to scandalize this salad recipe said to be created by Oscar Tschirkyof New York.

Rhubarb Apple Chutney with Camembert and Crusty Bread

I meant to do Rhubarb Pear Chutney, but I had some very sad apples that couldn’t even be salvaged in a pie. I simply could not go through with the pear part,  knowing I would have to throw the apples away. That being said, the pears are gorgeous right now and make my mouth water every time I look at that gigantic bag on the counter, carefully ripening at what seems a painful pace, so go ahead and substitute pears if you like.

Apple Cranberry Curry

I love the simplicity of this curry. The flavors are great, it makes a fantastic leftover (all curries are better the next day) and though it needs a fair bit of stewing time, the prep work involved is minimal. A dear friend of mine was kind enough to share with me one of her favorite recipes and one I look forward to whenever I go over to her house for dinner. If this recipe was made in a slow cooker and allowed to stew all day it would allow the flavors to develop that much more.

Apple Cottage Cheese Pancakes

These little delights are one of my favourite autumn treats. There is something about the sweet yet tart taste of apples and the spice of cinnamon that simply says, without saying a word, “Let the snow fall.” I came across this beautiful recipe again on our excursion into the great unknown of the Canadian boreal forest. With a focus on vegetarian cooking and items that last a long time, this recipe ranked high on the list of go to meals. Egg whites can be frozen in those handy little cartons (however egg whites separated from the yolk made from scratch are best) from the grocery store and provided us with lots of low fat protein. Apples are always on hand and cottage cheese is another fabulous source of calcium and low fat protein that has a long expiry date.

At the time we were on a P90 kick so big breakfasts were a must after our workouts. Now I tend to make these on a relaxed Sunday morning when there’s a chill in the morning air. They’re perfect for those mornings when warm muffins feels like the right idea but maybe something creative and a little different is the order of the day. They make a fabulous brunch item, as well, if there are ever a few guests to feed and impress, yet they take minimal work. Now don’t you look smart!
