Waldorf salad

Method

  • Heat a little oil in a non-stick pan and toast the walnuts until well coated and golden brown. 
  • To make the dressing, combine the mayonnaise with the sour cream, a good squeeze of lemon juice, the herbs and mustard. Set aside. 
  • Sprinkle the chops with a little oil and fresh lemon juice, and cook on a preheated ridged grill (or BBQ) to the desired degree, seasoning once sealed and sprinkling with a little more lemon juice as you do so. 
  • Then gently toss the celery, oranges, radishes, apples, walnuts and lettuce with a decent amount of the dressing. Taste for seasoning. 
  • To serve as a starter or light lunch, arrange the prosciutto slices on individual plates and top with a mound of the Waldorf salad. 
  • To serve as a main course, mound the salad on individual plates and top with the chops. Or the salad can be served as is as an accompaniment.
