I, too, saw RR prepare this on TV. I made it just the other day and it is good! Different from most other mayo-type Waldorf Salads I've had but a nice change. A wonderful mixture of flavors and textures. The dressing would probably be good on a lettuce salad or maybe even as a coleslaw dressing, too. Delicious!
