Be prepared for my Waldorf Salad CPK copycat recipe, that’s inspired from my favorite dish at California Pizza Kitchen. However, with less calories!



  • 1/2 Iceberg salad
  • 2 Apples
  • 34 sticks of celery
  • 1 cup of Walnuts
  • 3 tablespoon Sugar
  • 1/3 cup of Blue Cheese
  • Olive Oil
  • Balsamico


  1. Start by heating up a pan and add 3 spoonful water and 3 spoonful sugar and about 1 cup of walnuts. 
  2. Now, stir constantly until the nuts are glazed.
  3. Carefully pour the glazed nuts out on a baking sheet to cool down. Be careful not to touch them! They are very hot!
  4. Now you cut apples and celery in smaller pieces and combine with the chopped salad.
  5. Then you top with the glazed walnuts and crumbled blue cheese.
  6. Finally drizzle with olive oil and balsamico.


Serve with fresh baked bread.
