Cranberry Waldorf

Sounds alot like this one that I make.

Cranberry Waldorf
1 c Cranberries, fresh, chopped
2 tb Sugar
2 Apples, peeled, cored (use one sweet and one tart)
1 tb Fresh lemon juice
3 Celery ribs, thinly sliced
1/2 c Walnuts, toasted, chopped
1/4 c Raisins
1/4 c Mayonnaise

1.Toss the cranberries with the sugar to mix. Sprinkle the chopped apples with the lemon juice to prevent browning.
2.Mix the cranberries and apples with the remaining ingredients. Cover and chill several hours before serving.

Very similar - I'm just not a mayo enthusiast, lol - I like the sour cream better!

This sounds fantastic, marmalady! Do you think it would work with nonfat or lowfat sour cream or would that totally destroy it?

I personally don't use the 'no fat' for anything - I hate it! But it should be fine with low fat. In fact, I may have used that last year, and saw no difference.

I usually don't use it either, but since I eat too many homemade high fat desserts, I try to keep the fat down in my main and side dishes. Non fat sour cream on its own has NO taste, but I tried it mixed with orange juice, etc. in a recipe for "Mock Strawberries Romanoff" a long time ago, and it was pretty good. I just don't make it a habit - it could never compare to the real thing! If I do your salad for Thanksgiving, I may use the lowfat, but will probably just use the regular full fat sour cream - after all, it IS Thanksgiving!

You could also use mascarpone, or creme fraiche, both of which (I think) are lower in fat than sour cream
