Waldorf Rainbow Salad

Welcome to our latest blog post in the “Kids Cooking Local at Home” series. Today, we’re excited to introduce a fun and colorful recipe that your keiki (children) will love: the Waldorf Rainbow Salad. This vibrant dish is not only delicious but also a great way to incorporate local produce and healthy ingredients into your family’s diet.

Why Waldorf Rainbow Salad?

The Waldorf Rainbow Salad is a twist on the classic Waldorf Salad, which traditionally includes apples, celery, grapes, and walnuts dressed in mayonnaise. Our version adds a burst of color and flavor by incorporating a variety of fresh, local fruits and vegetables. It’s a perfect way to teach kids about the importance of eating a rainbow of foods for a balanced diet.

The Waldorf Rainbow Salad is a fun and nutritious dish that brings together the best of local produce. It’s a great way to get your kids involved in the kitchen and teach them about healthy eating. We hope you enjoy making and eating this colorful salad as much as we do!
