Waldorf Chicken Salad

Aug 22nd, 2022

Try this delicious recipe created by Perfectly Imperfect Produce. Perfectly Imperfect Produce started in 2016 by Ashley Weingart in Cleveland, Ohio to help eliminate food waste and provide cost effective options for produce. Big box retailers reject fruits and veggies that are unique in size, shape or color to meet consumer demand for perfection. Each week Perfectly Imperfect Produce rescues fresh fruits and veggies from local suppliers, packs them up into a variety of box combinations and delivers them. For every box they sell they make donations to local food pantries. Now, in the Northeast Ohio market, you can try one of their boxes by ordering all fruitall veggie or mixed fruit and veggie for delivery with your next Market Wagon order.

This salad is special enough to serve at brunch or for a small gathering, and simple enough to prep ahead for the upcoming week. It’s perfect paired with crackers for high-protein snacks, tucked into wraps for an anything-but-basic lunch, or served atop lettuce for a light and refreshing no-cook dinner.
