This turkey waldorf salad recipe can easily be made vegetarian by using veggie meat substitutes! It's already gluten-free, and totally vegan if you use a meat substitute. If you're anything like me and you think “ew” at the thought of fruit and meat mixing, skip the apples and grapes and you'll still love the waldorf salad. Though, I think the fruit might have something to do with it being called “waldorf” so… ignore me, what do I know? ;)
