Easy Waldorf Salad
Waldorf Salad, originally served at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in 1893, is a fantastic fusion of diced apples, walnuts, celery, and grapes in a simple mayonnaise dressing.
Servings: 6 as a side
Add the prepared grapes, celery, apples, and walnuts to a large mixing bowl. Gently toss to combine.
In a small bowl mix together the mayonnaise and sugar until completely combined.
Add the mayonnaise mixture to the bowl filled with the apples, grapes, and celery. Gently mix to combine.
Serve in bowls with your favorite mixed salad greens or lettuce and season with salt and pepper, to taste.
- Any type of crisp and sweet apple is perfect for this recipe. Examples include golden or red delicious apples, in addition to Pink Lady apples.
- If you prefer chopped pecans use those in place of the chopped walnuts.
- Ripe, yet firm, pears are a great alternative to apples.
- Some Waldorf salad recipes recommend tossing the apples in a little lemon juice to prevent them from browning. I (personally) avoid this step as I feel the lemon juice makes the mayonnaise taste a little funny. This step, however, is up to you.
