Waldorf Salad goes Floribean

I hope you enjoy this Floribbean (Caribbean/Floridian) twist on the classic Waldorf salad. It is perfect for those hot summer nights when it is too hot to cook.


½ cup mayonnaise

½ cup plain Greek yogurt

1 tbsp lemon zest

Juice of half lemon

1 tbsp honey

1 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro

¼ cup sweetened shredded coconut

2 cups poached chicken breast, 1/2” dice (Poached in water lightly seasoned with cumin, salt, pepper, oregano and garlic powder)

1 apple peeled cored and sliced, cut into bite sized pieces

½ cup chopped walnuts (toasted)

½ cup fresh pineapple chunks, small

½ cup seedless grapes cut in half (red or green)

¼ cup finely diced red onions

¼ cup finely diced celery

Combine above ingredients in a bowl and chill for 1 hour. Serve over a bed of mixed greens.
