Refreshing twist on Waldorf Salad, with dried cranberries, lemon and orange zest. I have never been a big fan of Waldorf salad, so I looked at several recipes and came up with one I really like. This is one I take to Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner. Go ahead give it a try, it's apple season and they are probably on sale. You can use any apple but I have found Granny Smith apples are the best for this salad. They impart a better flavor.
