Waldorf Salad

Cool, refreshing salad that is great for lunch on the go or for a light dinner.

Eat plain, wrapped in a lettuce leaf or over spinach.

Quick prep hint(s):

Prepare turkey/chicken ahead of time.  Bake or grill plenty of turkey/chicken.  Then cool, chop, divide and freeze.

Use in future salad recipes, lettuce wraps, extra protein in soups, etc.
