Waldorf Salad with Crisp Apples, Toasted Walnuts and Icewine Vinaigrette
Wine Pairing: Inniskillin Vidal or Riesling Icewine
This play on a traditional Waldorf Salad accentuates the freshness of the salad by using a lighter vinaigrette as opposed to a mayonnaise based dressing.

Salt and Pepper to Taste
