Traditional Waldorf Salad
This is a traditional Waldorf salad made with apples, raisins, and walnuts and tossed with mayonnaise. We think of this as a harvest-time salad but all that is really required are good crisp apples. You can usually get good apples year around but if you don’t have good apples, don’t bother making a Waldorf salad.
3 cups coarsely chopped apples, about 3 medium apples
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup mayonnaise, or to taste
1/2 cup raisins
1 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts salad greens or lettuce
Toss the apples with the sugar, salt, and mayonnaise to coat. Add the raisins, celery, and nuts. Serve on greens.
