Made this based on the ingredients I had on hand. It was a little too sweet for us and would have liked a little more celery in proportion to the apples.
Wonderful salad. I left out the brown sugar, as I didn't see a need to add it!
The memories this brings back. As one of my mom's favorites, I had it at least once a month growing up. I made it with walnuts and just as written and it's perfect. Crunchy, sweet and delicious. Don't change it and don't leave anything out and it's wonderful.
Delicious. I used 4 different kinds of apples which gave this salad a great taste. I've made Waldorf Salads before but have never added the brown sugar. I love the way the brown sugar offset the slight lemon tang. We used walnuts and added some dried cranberries. Great recipe, thanks for posting.
Very good! I made it as written but lo and behold I was out of brown sugar! I was so sure I had some. I used white sugar instead and adjusted the amount by taste. I think next time I may leave out the celery, to me it was a bit overwhelming in taste. My husband loves "apple salad" this was simple and quick. I added a pear in with my apples and used walnuts for the nuts.
Yummy! I added a little more mayo, cinnamon and nutmeg. I also had some grapes that needed used up- so I halved them and tossed them in. YUM! I served this with grilled sliced ham, made a great summer dinner. thanks for the post Nancy!
Nancy, your recipe for Waldorf Salad is wonderful. Though this is considered a "typical" recipe, I like the flavor. It allows for ALL of the items to be tasted, not overwhelmed by just one flavor. I enjoy wrapping your recipe in Leaf Lettuce and serving as a finger-food. Great for buffets! Also, we love it with cashews for an extra twist.
Waldorf has always been one of - if not "the" - my favorite. Over the years by experimenting I have come up with what I enjoy as the best dressing for it. Mayonaise, lemon juice, Durkee's Sauce (careful, it is strong,) and poppy seeds. I try to make the dressing the day before to let the flavors blend.
I tried this recipe and about 4 others for Thanksgiving and I was thrilled with everyone I tried. This one was a walk down memory lane for me cuz my Mom always made this for the holidays.
