Waldorf Salad

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Mary Leverington

This is the original Waldorf Salad recipe which I clipped out of the newspaper several years ago. My mother made this salad often--it must have been a favorite of hers also. Newer versions have left out some of the ingredients which add variety in texture and taste. It's a classic American salad which was developed by the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City.

Waldorf Salad Deluxe! This was amazing. I added some dried, sweetened cranberries, but followed the recipe otherwise. Thank you Mary for posting this delightful and scrumptious recipe!
