A woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised.
Give her the product of her hands,
And let her works praise her in the gates." (Proverbs 31:30b-31, NASV)

Waldorf Salad

My husband recently took on a new job that doesn't offer a microwave for employee use, so I have found myself facing the challenge of coming up with delicious dinners that can be eaten cold. This has been a bit of a challenge for me, as I am personally a huge fan of warm, toasty, melty, hot things. But since I can hardly let myself send him off to work with a cold turkey sandwich every night, (nope, I just can't do it), I am setting for myself the goal of coming up with a handful of good, "cold" recipes that are so delicious that they still "warm" the stomach, if that makes any sense.

My recent success, which I have now made several times, has been the Waldorf Salad. A delectable dish, made up of tangy grapes, sweet apples, crisp celery, and buttery walnuts atop a bed of fresh romaine lettuce, it is simple to prepare and travels easily in tupperware - and best of all it only requires a fork and taste buds to enjoy!

As always, this recipe is tried and true from my kitchen to yours.
