Waldorf Hazelnut Salad with Dee’s Sausages

12 Jun

This new twist on the traditional summer picnic or BBQ salad, is crunchy and refreshing and very simple to make. Ideal to bring to a vegan BBQ or even to have with your lunch!

You will need:
1 pack of Dee’s Sausages
2 large ripe avocados
3-5 dried apricots, chopped
2 crunchy apples, diced
2 sticks of celery, chopped
75g chopped nuts
Juice of 1 lemon
Salt and pepper
Fresh parsley (optional)

Method:
Cook the sausages according to packet instruction and chop in to large chunks.
If want to have the nuts toasted, as it really brings out the flavour, now is the time to do it. Lightly brown them in the oven for 3-5 minutes at 180° C.
Take the stone out of the avocados and remove the skin. Mash then into a nice paste or leave a little chunky if you prefer that consistency.
Place the apple, celery, apricots, nuts, lemon juice and avocado in a bowl and mix well.
Season with a little salt and pepper, add sausages and gently mix.
Place in a snazzy serving bowl and sprinkle some chopped parsley on top.
Best eaten on the day you make it!
Enjoy, Eoin.

Top Tips:
Make sure all your ingredients are cold from the fridge, it gives the salad a more refreshing taste.
Try adding something like grapes to give it a nice juicy bite. Just slice them in half and add in.

Unlike a traditional Waldorf salad, there is no mayonnaise in this recipe, instead the avocado replaces the mayonnaise.
