Healthy Strawberry Waldorf Salad #SundaySupper #FlStrawberry

This post for Healthy Strawberry Waldorf Salad is sponsored by the Florida Strawberry Growers Association in conjunction with a social media campaign through Sunday Supper LLC. All opinions are my own.

Sweet, Fresh  Florida Strawberries tossed with grapes, walnuts and a few marshmallows in a creamy and light coconut dressing will be your new favorite healthy salad.

Come together in a few minutes and taste so good, it could be dessert - Strawberry Waldorf Salad

I love that I can eat fresh, sweet Florida Strawberries in the dead of winter.  This morning it is dark, cold and damp.  The kind of morning you want to go back to bed and curl up with the covers over your head.  One bite of a sweet Florida Strawberry and the darkness turns to light.  These sweet, ruby red gems send shockwaves of happiness through my body and give me plenty of energy.  Did you know that eight strawberries have your daily requirement of Vitamin C?  1 cup has about 83 calories and 3.5 grams of fiber making it a perfect afternoon snack too.  Now with Weight Watchers, strawberries are 0 points.  Oh yeah! Sunday Supper is partnering with Florida Strawberry Growers Association to bring you Healthy & Nutritious Valentine’s Day recipes.  You will find lots of healthy recipes with strawberries at the bottom of this post.  Don’t miss it.

With this Strawberry Waldorf Salad, I decided to have a little fun and go with a salad that is normally a treat for me.  Of course, I did make changes in my Mom’s original recipe to make it healthier, but it is still so fun.  After all it has some mini marshmallows in it.  How can anything with mini marshmallows not be fun?  Every Thanksgiving and Christmas, my Mom makes a Cranberry Waldorf Salad.  I adapted that recipe to make it more low calorie here. In that recipe, there were lots of mini marshmallows.

In this strawberry version, I did not need to add many marshmallows to make a deliciously, sweet salad.  The strawberries did it for me.  Plus a big bonus, I could happily chomp on the strawberries while I was making it.  You sure won’t catch me chomping on some fresh cranberries.  Whoa, serious tartness.  The strawberries were a beautiful addition.  I love the pop of color they provide and the bursts of full strawberry flavor.  This salad is refreshing and light.  Just what I think a strawberry taste likes.

With its beautiful pink color, this salad is even perfect for Valentine’s Day.  If you are making fit or you and your sweeties, you can half or even quarter the recipe.  Want to make it for Easter?  Make a full batch.  It will be a hit with your friends and family.  If you are particularly artistic (which sadly I am not), cut some of the whole strawberries into pretty shapes to decorate the top.  Strawberry Waldorf Salad would even be a big hit for a potluck.  Grab a pint or two of Florida Strawberries and make this salad for yourself.  Be sure to have a few extra strawberries to snack on while you are making it.  Each bite of a delicious Florida Strawberry will bring a big smile to your face and blast through those winter doldrums.
