Mom’s Waldorf Salad

My Mom loved Waldorf Salad. It was on our Christmas Table every year. I think it also made an appearance on our Thanksgiving Table too. I haven’t had this in many years. This is her recipe and Mommy, this is for you. ❤️

Waldorf Salad was created at the Waldorf Astoria in New York by a dining room manager in 1896. The original recipe only had apples, celery and mayonnaise. My Mom’s recipe also had walnuts.

apples cored and cut into bite size pieces

1 cup of celery, diced

1 cup of walnuts, chopped (I chopped the walnuts and lightly toasted them under the broiler)

<
/2 cup mayonnaise

1/2 lemon, juiced

1/2 teaspoon salt

<
ut apples, chop celery and nuts and set aside in a large bowl. Mix dressing up in a separate bowl and pour on top of apples, celery and walnuts. Mix well, refrigerate and enjoy.

Side note, this is the identical bowl I used to eat my Waldorf Salad in when I was growing up. Straight out of the 1960’s, The is a Blenko bowl and I have a set of 7. I own 6 small bowls and one larger salad bowl. I treasure these and my Mom’s recipe.
