Classic Waldorf Salad…the cat is a way, the mice will play…
Posted on June 23, 2012
Mark is out of town for the weekend on a fishing trip near Leavenworth WA so I have the whole kitchen to myself :0) Jack and I are keeping it pretty simple tonight so I decided to make a dish that is very close to my heart- Waldorf Salad.
I once made this salad when I was 9 years old (give or take) at a 4-H cooking competition…I was totally on point the entire presentation and just when I was about to wrap it up the judge asked “what are you going to do with the celery??” … Umm, I was so excited I forgot the main ingredient!! I tell you, it scarred me for life ;0) It gets better…I yelled “OH RATS!!!” right into the mic…so strange what we remember of our childhood. Correct me if I am wrong mom, but I think I did walk away with a 1st Place Ribbon :0)
Super easy, even a 9 year old can do it:
- 4-5 stalks of celery, chopped
- 2 apples of your choice (I used Honey Crisp), chopped
- 1 cup red seedless grapes, sliced
- 2/3 cup raisins
- 3/4 cups chopped, slightly toasted walnuts
- 1/3 cup creme fraiche
- 2-3 tbsp mayonnaise
- Salt, to taste
- Lemon juice, to taste
Combine all ingredients and enjoy!!
