How to make it

  • Prepare the dressing.
  • Place it in a large stainless-steel bowl and have it ready in the refrigerator.
  • Core the apples and dice them to 1/2 inch, without peeling them.
  • As soon as the apples are cut, add them to the dressing and mix in to prevent darkening.
  • Add the celery and walnuts.
  • Fold in until evenly mixed.
  • Arrange the lettuce cups as bases on cold salad plates or in bowls.
  • Using a scoop, place a mound of salad on each plate.
  • If garnish is desired, sprinkle each salad with about 1 tsp chopped nuts.
  • Hold in refrigerator until ready to serve.
  • =========================================
  • Notes:
  • Plain mayonnaise may be used instead of Chantilly dressing.
  • =========================================
  • Variations:
  • Any of the following ingredients may be added to the basic Waldorf mixture.
  • If any of these changes is made, the item should no longer be called simply' Waldorf Salad'.
  • Change the menu name to indicate that the product contains other ingredients.
  • For example: 'Pineapple Waldorf Salad' or 'Apple Date Salad'.
  • 8 oz diced pineapple
  • 4 oz chopped dates, substituted for the walnuts
  • 4 oz raisins, plumped in hot water and drained
  • 1 lb shredded cabbage or Chinese cabbage, substituted for the celery.
  • ENJOY!

    I am a Waldorf Salad convert - used to think they were disgusting, believe it or not (obviously my tastes have changed with my age!). This sounds very good - anxious to try the Chantilly Dressing on this. Thanks!

    I'm a big fan of both The Waldorf Hotel (actually stayed there when it was in its declining years!) AND the salad that bears its name! You variations on this dish are wonderful, elaine. Thanks and my 5.
