Waldorf Salad, Georgia Style

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 0 mins

The combination of peach preserves and mayonnaise makes a special Georgian dressing for this classic salad. From "Southern Homecoming Traditions." I like it best if chilled 24 hours before serving, but it is delicious even if served immediately.

Made for Spring PAC 2010. So now I have a new Waldorf Salad recipe! I really liked the added flavor the peach preserves gave the salad. Since I am a nut (he he!), I used both walnuts and pecans. Thanks for sharing.

This is a really excellent Waldorf Salad!!! Great balanced flavors and love that it has lemon juice to keep the apples fresh and from turning brown. I love the use of peach preserves mixed with the mayonnaise!!! Super delicious!! I used recipe#47554 that I had made a couple of weeks ago so it really had a great flavor! Also, used recipe#334118 so my pecans were roasted and extra good and crisp!! I prefer pecans over walnuts so this is my favorite Waldorf Salad now, thanks Deb G!
