My sweet older sister was in town for a week and of course we talk food. She feeds her kids very well, but she is the QUEEN of yummy snacks and delicious dishes! (sometimes not so healthy... sorry Tiff :)
We were talking one afternoon and she said she craves chicken salad sandwiches, then she proceeded to suggest I create a healthy version. I threw it back at her and suggested she make one and share it with me! SHE DID IT!!! And you guys are in for a real treat, it was DELICIOUS! It turned out more like a waldorf salad, hence the name:
TIFFANY'S WALDORF PITAS
2 C. red grapes
3 celery sticks
3/4 C chopped walnuts
2 TBSP veganaise
4 green onions
1 avocado (optional, - a great source of good fats)
1 can of black beans drained and rinsed
salt and pepper to taste
Finely chop all ingredients and mix in together with veganaise. Add avocado last so it doesn't get all mushy in the mixture. Scoop into a whole wheat pita with spinach or romaine lettuce and enjoy!
**I have also challenged her to convert her favorite snacks into vegan/healthier versions and guest blog for us!! Hopefully we will hear from her soon because I cannot wait for her next recipe!!
