Blue Cheese Waldorf Salad

Blue Cheese Waldorf Salad

2 medium apples – unpeeled and cubed
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 cup dried tart cherries
1 cup sliced celery
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup slivered almonds
2 tablespoons crumbled blue cheese (about 1/2 ounce)

In a medium serving bowl, toss apple cubes in lemon juice. Add cherries, celery, mayonnaise, almonds and blue cheese; mix well. Refrigerate, covered, to blend flavors.

Serving size: 2/3 cup

NOTES : Prepare early in the day to blend flavors.

Use an apple variety suitable for salads such as McIntosh, Stayman, Empire, or Golden Delicious and Cortland, both of which resist browning when cut.
