Waldorf Salad

4 servings  

Waldorf salad [WAWL-dorf] created at New York's Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in the 1890's not by a chef but by the maître d'hôtel Oscar Tschirky, the Waldorf salad was an instant success. The original version of this salad contained only apples, celery and mayonnaise. Chopped walnuts later became an integral part of the dish. Waldorf salad is usually served on top of a bed of lettuce. This recipe is one of many variations of the original 1890's recipe.

  • 2 cups (2 med-large) diced unpared
       red delicious apple *
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 heaping Tablespoonfuls light mayonnaise
       dressing (or nonfat salad dressing)
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  •    dash lemon juice
  •    green grapes; maraschino cherries (optional)

Stir together the mayo, honey and lemon juice.

Combine all ingredients together and chill until ice-cold.

If desired, serve on lettuce and garnish with green grapes or maraschino cherries.

* Variation: use 1 red delicious and 1 golden delicious apple.
