Simple Old Fashioned Waldorf Salad Recipes

There may well be fifty "authentic" Waldorf salads. Some are even made with frozen topping and marshmallows! This one, though, is one I have made for years and is delicious with holiday dinners. Another simple salad recipes.

Makes 6 to 8 servings

  • 3 medium size ribs celery thinly sliced

  • 3 large, very crisp red Delicious or Gala apples, unpeeled, quartered, cored, and cut into 1/4 inch dice

  • 1/2 cup raisin, preferably Muscat, plumped 10 minutes in boiling water to cover and drained.

  • 1/2 cup walnut or pecan pieces, toasted

  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise, prepared or homemade

  • 1/2 teaspoon celery seed salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 head leaf lettuce

  • 1 tablespoon chopped toasted walnuts or pecans for garnish

  1. In a large bowl, toss together the celery, apple, raisins, and nut pieces. In a smaller bowl, stir together the mayonnaise and the celery seed. Stir this dressing into the salad, adding it in several batches, until the salad is well moistened but the ingredients still retain their individual character. Season well with salt and pepper.

  2. Refrigerate 1 hour.

  3. To serve, arrange the lettuce in a salad bowl or on a serving platter. Pile the chilled salad on top and garnish with the chopped nuts.
