Sometimes the word ‘salad’ in a dish can be more than a little misleading – for example the carb laden, devoid of vegetables pasta salad or potato salad, or the high in fructose and inflammatory fat laden Waldorf salad!
But whilst pasta salads and potato salads are too high in carb for my Lean and Clean program I’ve taken the traditional Waldorf salad recipe and given it the Lean and Clean makeover, replacing apple for fibre laden, fructose free jicama, swapping out inflammatory fat and high cal, low nutrient mayo for gut health boosting plant based yoghurt, and adding in leafy greens and fresh herbs for blood sugar balance and extra micronutrients:

For the dressing
Make the dressing by combing the yoghurt, lemon juice and seasonings. Place all other ingredients in a mixing bowl, cover with the dressing and mix until all ingredients are evenly covered. Serve of a bed of leafy greens.
