Grape and Almond Salad with Honey Yogurt Dressing

Grape and Almond Salad with Honey Yogurt Dressing

YIELD: Makes 4 to 6 servings


1/2 cup - sliced skin-on almonds

1/2 cup - plain yogurt, (non-fat, low-fat or whole milk)

2 T - vegetable oil

2 T - honey*

1 T - apple cider vinegar

1 tsp. - Dijon mustard

1/4 tsp. - kosher salt

4 cups - seedless grapes, sliced in half

2 cups - apples, cored and chopped

1 cup - celery, sliced


Preheat oven to 350°F. Spread almonds on a baking sheet and place in oven for 12-15 minutes or until lightly toasted; cool.

In a mixing bowl, whisk together yogurt, oil, honey, vinegar, mustard and salt until smooth. With a rubber spatula, gently fold in almonds and grapes.


*The salad dressing should preferably use a mild-tasting and light-in-color honey like clover. Others that work well that have a little more flavor are avocado and orange blossom honey.
