    Darlene Summers's Note:

    The old fashioned Waldorf salad has very few ingredients. This is the old timey way to fix it.

    1. 1
      As soon as apples are diced, mix the mayonnaise into the apples so they will not turn brown.
    2. 2
      Add celery and nuts; combine well.

      A simple recipe without some of the frills you sometimes find in a Waldorf salad -- but really delicious. I like this version better than any I've had. The proportions of ingredients are just right.

      This is exactly how my grandmother made waldorf salad...if she could afford it she would also add grapes...this is comfort food with lovely memories of my grandmothers kitchen. Thanks so much for posting this recipe!

      I read many different recipes and settled on this one because of its simplicity. I was skeptical that such a basic list of ingredients could work, but I figured if the flavor wasn't right I could always adjust and add the other (some questionable!) items that many of the other recipes suggested (mini marshmallows...pineapple...banana...yogurt...dried fruit...sugar...splenda...etc.). I was amazed at how simple, perfect, fresh, and tasty this recipe came out. I did use 1Tb lemon juice on my diced apple to keep it from browning as I wasn't sure mayo would do the trick on its own. And since I do like sweetness, but didn't want to add sugar or artificial sweetener, I did add 1 cup grapes, halved. Bottom line: If you are looking for a very easy, very delicious, simple and traditional Waldorf salad, this is it!
