Paleo Waldorf Salad

Is it just me, or is the Waldorf salad the first thing that comes to your mind, as well, when you think of walnuts?

Everyone seems to have an opinion about this traditional salad that was created in 1896, but not many people know that the original recipe didn’t contain walnuts – or any kind of nuts, for that matter. Good thing someone decided to add them since they are very beneficial to your health!

Did you know all this about walnuts?
– They are rich in high-quality antioxidants – more so than any other common nut, to be exact.
– Walnuts contain plenty of Omega-3’s, that can help reduce the risk of heart disease.
This study shows that walnuts can help you resist unhealthy food cravings. This means walnut could boost your weight loss. (They are calorie-dense, though, so pay attention to your daily consumption.)
– Adding walnuts to your diet may help you improve your memory.
– Walnuts are high in fiber, which can help your digestion.

Below you’ll find mouthwatering Paleo walnut recipes, including Paleo-friendly versions of the Waldorf salad – but also hearty main dishes! Stuffed pork chops or a walnut crusted steak will take care of even the hungriest of tummies.

However, the side dish recipes presented here are so tasty, you may forget about your entree.

But who am I kidding? The dessert section is obviously my favorite here! Crunchy walnuts make the perfect ingredient for desserts, and you can bet your bottom dollar people won’t even realize these are Paleo.

Some of the desserts would also make awesome, grab-and-run breakfasts on those mornings when you barely have time to get a cup of coffee. I’m crazy about the banana nut muffins and I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one!

Here are just a few of the Paleo Walnut Recipes we’ve included:

Paleo Salads & Slaws with Walnuts

Paleo Waldorf Salad

– Paleo Flourish

Paleo Waldorf Salad

Ingredients: salad leaves of your choice, paleo mayo, salt, pepper, apple, celery sticks, grapes, walnuts.

As long as you use Paleo mayo in your dressings, there is no need for anyone to miss out on creamy salads, and this Waldorf salad is a fusion of taste and texture. You have soft and juicy grapes, crisp apple slices and celery, all topped with the walnuts to add that special look. This makes a wonderfully impressive appetizer for a dinner party or a main for lunch for yourself!

Keto Waldorf Salad

– Keto Summit

Keto Waldorf Salad

Ingredients: salad leaves of your choice, paleo mayo, salt, black pepper, Granny Smith apple, stalks of celery, grapes, walnuts.

Waldorf salad is traditionally made with a creamy dressing and in this recipe, this comes from the paleo mayo which keeps the dressing dairy free. Aside from the salad leaves, this also has the fresh flavors of apple and celery, making this a lovely light and delicious salad to enjoy for lunch on a summer day, or as an appetizer for a dinner party. This is a simple recipe but it gives you a wonderfully tasty dish.

Unlike some other chicken salad recipes, this keto-compliant dish does not contain mayonnaise but uses avocado to give the creamy texture.

This salad tastes amazing served on lettuce wraps for a low carb lunch.

The first thing that you will notice with this dish are the colors, and they really make this salad zing.

Ingredients: Brussels sprouts, bacon, walnuts, dried fruit of choice, pumpkin seeds, extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, black pepper, dijon mustard.

Bacon and sprouts are normally associated with roasting, but they really work well in this crunchy salad. The sprouts are mildly flavored, especially if you remove the outer leaves, and the bacon adds a meaty texture to contrast with the dried fruit. This salad also works well with raisins, or if you don’t have dried fruit you can add in some thinly sliced apple.

The combination of textures in this dish makes it a great idea for a quick and easy Paleo lunch. You have sweetness from the pears, the crunch from the walnuts and the smoky flavor of the bacon and all together this is a tasty and delicious dish. The sweet pears do not overtake the other flavors because of the citrus juice and you can serve this with whatever salad greens you like.

Swiss Chard Salad with Toasted Walnuts

– Steph Gaudreau

Ingredients: shallot, garlic, fresh rosemary, avocado oil, sea salt, black pepper, walnut halves, Swiss chard, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar.

With its colorful stems, Swiss chard can make a lovely green to use in salads to make the food look as good as it tastes. There is the subtle flavor of garlic and rosemary and the crunch of the toasted walnuts all dressed in a citrusy dressing to liven up the flavors of the greens. If you can’t get chard, this lovely Paleo-compliant salad works just as well with spinach.

Beetroot And Walnut Salad

– Ditch the Carbs

Ingredients: lettuce, beetroot chunks, radishes, walnuts, feta crumbled (omit), spring onion, cucumber, unsweetened yogurt (omit).

This is one of the healthiest Paleo salads as it is low in carbs and grain and gluten free. This recipe calls for feta cheese, but if this is not to your liking, you can either substitute it with different cheese or miss it out completely for an even lower carb version. Beetroot is a healthy vegetable, rich in antioxidants, and adding it to salads is one of the best ways to use it, so why not try this delicious dish!

Apple Walnut Slaw

– Taste of Home

Ingredients: mayonnaise, buttermilk (omit), sugar (omit), lemon juice, salt, pepper, cabbage, carrots, red onion, walnuts, raisins, apples.

Sometimes it can be difficult to find interesting side dishes, especially when you have friends over, so next time you could try this delicious slaw which goes with loads of dishes. You have all the flavors of coleslaw, but with the added crunch from the apple and nuts and the sweetness from the raisins. This can be served at a barbecue, with chicken or steak, or as a side for chops.

Paleo Cranberry Chicken Salad

You can serve this with keto crackers for an extra bit of crunch, or with cucumber slices to keep things really low carb.

Ingredients: shallot, fresh lemon juice, extra virgin olive oil, salt, fresh ground pepper, chicken, seedless grapes, walnuts, celery, parsley.

This delicious recipe is a Paleo version of an old classic which uses a vinaigrette dressing instead of mayo, making this a dairy free salad but without losing out on the flavors. This is a great way to use up leftover chicken from a roast meal, and by adding nuts and fruit you have a salad that is rich in taste and texture and high in vitamins A and C..

Paleo Chicken Salad with Grapes & Walnuts

– Paleo Running Momma

Ingredients: chicken breasts, salt, pepper, onion powder, dried poultry seasoning, ghee or coconut oil, walnuts, cinnamon, pitted dates, Paleo mayo, fresh lemon juice.

Here is another amazing recipe that can be useful for using up leftover chicken or even turkey. This is a fusion of fresh and fruity flavors from the dates and nuts, combined in a creamy mayo dressing with a hint of citrus to lift the taste. This is also an adaptable recipe – for example, you can add some chopped celery or cucumber, and even sprinkle some cooked bacon pieces over the top for extra protein.

When you are making a special dinner for Thanksgiving or Christmas, it can be a great idea to make your sides special too, especially when you are following a healthy eating plan, as that means you don’t feel like you are missing out. This casserole is so full of taste and the sweetness from the maple and apple goes really well with turkey, so this could be your new go-to Paleo winter comfort food.

– Low Carb Yum

Ingredients: sausage, cabbage head, onion powder, garlic powder, walnuts, almond shavings, Worcestershire sauce (omit), coconut aminos or tamari, olive oil.

Egg rolls are a very popular dish in Chinese and Eastern cuisines, but most of them involve frying the roll to crisp up the pastry cover. So here is a low carb Paleo option that doesn’t use the wrapper, letting you fully enjoy the flavors of the fillings. This recipe makes enough for six to eight people, and you can make it go even further if you include a couple of cups of bean sprouts.

Pesto Pasta w/ Roasted Grapes+ Caramelized Leeks

Ingredients: red grapes, leek, coconut oil, sweet potato, basil leaves, walnut halves, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt.

When you are eating the Paleo way, it can be a good idea to use a spiralizer to make ‘pasta’ as this lets you use sweet potato or zucchini instead of the regular wheat-based noodles. In this vegetarian dish you will enjoy the fruity grapes and caramelized leeks all tossed in a walnut pesto that is packed with Mediterranean flavor. If you need to add some protein, toss in cooked chicken or pulled pork for a satisfying dish.

Ingredients: zucchini noodles, fresh radicchio, fresh parsley, parmesan cheese (omit), walnuts, avocado oil, fresh lemon juice, garlic, granulated sugar substitute (omit), Kosher salt, pepper.

Walnuts are really good for you as they have a high level of healthy fats and fatty acids, so this Paleo meal is super-healthy! They also add a whole new dimension to the texture of salads, so they don’t have to be boring. The vinaigrette used here gives the whole dish a light and fresh taste and can be prepared in advance if you are going to be short of time on the day.

Bacon Cheese Walnut Crusted Steak

Steak can be a very impressive meal to cook for friends or as a special occasion dinner for you and your significant other, and what could be better than an amazing crust to set off the meat perfectly! This bacon, cheese and walnut crust is low carb, Keto friendly and delicious and can help to make this meal absolutely wonderful. If you can’t get the cheese listed here you could use an aged Gouda instead.

Salmon is a super-healthy fish which is perfect for Paleo as it is rich in fish oils and healthy fats. So if you are looking for a simple but delicious recipe for salmon then look no further! You have a spiced pesto to drizzle over the fish and a flavored oil to decorate with once you are ready to plate up. There is no need for fancy sides, as the fish and pesto are enough on their own.

Paleo Side Dishes with Walnuts

Low Carb Creamed Kale with Bacon and Walnuts

Ingredients: bacon, butter (omit), garlic, unsweetened almond milk, ground nutmeg, kale, mascarpone cheese (omit), parmesan or romano cheese (omit), salt, pepper, walnuts.

Although creamed greens are normally served as a side dish with different meats, this one would be great served on its own as it has the protein from the bacon and nuts. The creamy sauce comes from the parmesan and mascarpone which give a lovely light and cheesy flavor to the greens. If you really can’t eat kale, this Paleo recipe works well with collard greens or spinach too.

Peperoni Alla Bagna Cauda: Paleo Stuffed Peppers

Ingredients: bell peppers, garlic, anchovies filets, walnuts, organic butter (omit).

Bagna cauda is an Italian dip made with anchovies and quite a lot of garlic, so expect a flavor explosion in your mouth when you try these amazing peppers! The anchovies are not fishy, they just add a rich, savory flavor to the dip. This then contrasts with the sweet, roasted peppers to give you a light but fragrant lunchtime treat that is totally Paleo friendly.

Roasted Red Pepper and Walnut Dip

Ingredients: brussels sprouts, bacon fat, sprigs of thyme, garlic, salt, pepper, crushed walnuts as garnishing.

As a child, I was one of those who turned their nose up at sprouts, even at Christmas time, but that all changed when I started using bacon with them. The bacon fat changes the flavor of the veg and gets rid of any bitterness, so even picky eaters will want to try these Paleo friendly greens! When you take the outer leaves off, don’t discard them, roast them up and turn them into sprout chips!

Maple Date and Walnut Oven Roasted Acorn Squash

Ingredients: acorn squash, pure maple sugar, ghee, walnut halves, dates, chili pepper flakes, Himalayan salt, black pepper, fresh parsley.

Here is a delicious Paleo recipe for a side dish that would grace any table for a Sunday dinner or celebration. Instead of turning the squash into a casserole, simply roast wedges topped with this delicious spicy crumble for a tasty alternative to an old favorite. The combination of sweet, savory and spicy has to be tried to be believed!

Bacon-Wrapped Spiced Pumpkin

Ingredients: pumpkin or butternut squash, ground ginger, cinnamon, fresh rosemary, olive oil, maple syrup, walnuts, bacon.

This appetizer would be perfect for your Paleo Halloween dinner as you could use the pumpkin flesh you hollowed out! Wrapped in a bacon blanket, the pumpkin is sweet and really tasty and these little parcels make the perfect starter for a dinner with friends. If you like them extra sweet, you can drizzle with more maple syrup before serving, and this boosts the flavor of the bacon too.

Low-Carb Pumpkin, Walnut & Feta Dip

– Keto Diet App

Ingredients: pumpkin, extra virgin olive oil, paprika, garlic, red chili pepper, tahini, walnuts, lemon juice, feta cheese (omit), salt, pepper.

Roasted squash or pumpkin takes on a sweeter, richer flavor, making it ideal for turning into sides and dips. This Keto dip is thick and so tasty and works well with veggie sticks, but I like to serve it to spoon onto burgers and chicken as a side dish. If you don’t like feta or can’t have cheese, feel free to just omit it as the pumpkin dip has all the flavor you will need from the tahini and garlic.

The BEST Brussels Sprouts

– Maria Mind Body Health

Ingredients: bacon, Brussels sprouts, radicchio or kale, coconut oil, shallot, Celtic sea salt, pepper, soft boiled egg, walnuts, avocado.

If you are a fan of good old sprouts, you probably know the best way to cook them is with bacon fat as it helps to get rid of the bitterness, but in this great recipe you are going a step further and serving them with soft-boiled eggs! Even sprouts are good with bacon and eggs! If you choose to serve this with avocado, you have a tasty and filling dish that would be perfect for a satisfying Paleo lunch.

Paleo Desserts with Walnuts

Paleo Banana Nut Muffins

– Paleo Flourish

Paleo Banana Nut Muffins

Ingredients: bananas, eggs, almond flour, baking soda, baking powder, walnuts, ghee, raw honey, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves.

These muffins are full of the spices that make you think of winter – cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves – giving them a warming spicy flavor that goes well with a cup of coffee. They are sweet because of the banana and honey, but don’t have added sugars and taste great with toasted walnuts on top for added crunch. This is a great recipe for using up bananas that are a bit too ripe for eating raw.

Cardamom Orange Walnut Truffles

– Keto Summit

Cardamom Orange Walnut Truffles

Ingredients: almond butter (or walnut butter), coconut oil, orange zest, walnuts, unsweetened coconut flakes, cardamom, stevia (omit) to taste, unsweetened shredded coconut.

These keto truffles are filled with the flavors of Christmas but can be made any time! They are packed with nuts and healthy fats with the earthy notes of cardamom and all of this is set off beautifully by the freshness of the orange zest. To make these even more festive if you are making these at Christmas you can mix some more orange zest with the coconut for the coating!

Cherry Chocolate Bars

There is something a bit decadent about cherries and chocolate together, and these delicious bars would make a fantastic treat for Valentine’s or for a birthday. The bars are quite dense in the middle, a bit like a brownie, so these would be the perfect Paleo version if you’ve been missing sweet treats. Although these bars take quite a long time to cook, they only take minutes to prepare.

Orange Walnut Cake with Cardamom Cream

Ingredients: almond meal, coconut flour, yams, walnuts, orange zest, lemon zest, baking soda, coconut oil, eggs (preferably duck), coconut cream, ground cardamom seeds.

This recipe uses yams to give you a moist but rich flavor to the cake and work the same way as carrots in carrot cake. With the classic combination of orange and cardamom, this cake is gently spiced and has a lovely citrus hit from the zest. This cake is a bit higher in carbs, so you could use it for breakfast when your system needs a boost, or for an occasional treat when friends drop in for coffee.

Keto Brownie Bites

If you are like me and have a problem with portion control when it comes to cake, especially on a weight loss plan, these little brownie bites would be great as one of these is enough! These little treats are low in carbs, gluten free and vegetarian and are the ideal snack to pack for lunchtime. They also make great treats for kiddies’ parties too, and can be eaten plain or with toppings.

Chocolate Fat Bombs

Here is another great recipe for fat bombs that you can use to stave off hunger pangs mid-afternoon or provide as a sweet treat for the family for a special celebration. The consistency is reminiscent of fudge and they can be made as sweet as you like – just taste the mixture as you go to find the right level of sweetness. If you want to cut the carbs even more just miss out the walnut decoration.

Maple Walnut Fudge

Maple and walnut is a classic combination of flavors which makes this fudge so delicious. I often make this at Christmas time to give as gifts to friends and neighbors, and no-one even knows it’s Paleo! The coconut cream makes this fudge rich and velvety and true to traditional fudge. To make this even more pretty, you can place walnut halves on the top as it sets.

Paleo Carrot Cake Donuts

Ingredients: carrots, eggs, coconut oil, maple syrup, honey, vanilla, lemon juice, Otto’s Cassava Flour, coconut flour, arrowroot flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, salt, raisin, toasted walnuts, coconut butter, coconut milk.

If you are a fan of carrot cake (and who isn’t?) these amazing donuts will go down really well. They have all the flavor of traditional carrot cake but without the gluten, and like most Paleo donuts they are baked and not fried. When I make these lovely treats, I like to soak the raisins in some tea for an hour first so they plump up and add an even nicer flavor.

Paleo Apple Cinnamon Bread

This is a gluten and dairy free recipe that gives you chocolatey treats you can enjoy for special occasions or when you have friends round. This fudge is ideal for kids to make as a gift too!

As if brownie cookies weren’t indulgent enough, this recipe lets you make a caramel to pour over the top! Who said Paleo had to be boring? The cookies are wonderful as they are, but topped with the walnuts and caramel they make a perfect treat for a special occasion or as a dessert for Valentine’s Day. For added crunch, you can also toast the walnuts before adding them, but be careful as they burn very easily.

Now be honest – who doesn’t like apple tart? It has been a family favorite for many years and is a sweet comfort food for most of us. When you are eating the Paleo way, there is no need to miss out if you make this rustic apple tart with its coconut crust. If you use a sweet apple variety like Pink Lady, you will not need to add much extra sweetener, so experiment with different ones.
