I am shocked that this recipe wasn't in the other 89 recipes for Waldorf Salad. I truly though up until right now that my family's recipe was the ONLY Waldorf salad that existed, lol. We always make this at Thanksgiving & Christmas. This isn't really a measuring recipe, so I'll guesstimate on the measurements this will make me enter. We start the dressing part by throwing in a wooden spoon full of Miracle Whip and a heaping wooden spoonful of Cool Whip, then add a bit here and there to taste. We usually use about half green apples and half red; we use whatever grapes we can find during the holidays. Cook time is chill time.


  1. Dice apples and put into large mixing bowl.
  2. Slice grapes into halves, removing seeds, if applicable. Add halved grapes and pecans to apples.
  3. Fold Miracle Whip and Cool Whip into fruit and nuts. Adjust either "whip" to your preference.
  4. Chill one hour before serving.

Easy to make, but very tasty! I used walnuts instead of pecans. I see how you could easily eyeball the ingredients. I used gala and granny smith apples with red seedless grapes. Very Yummy!

I had an "apple salad" at a casino recently that I raved over for days on end. This comes really close. A touch sweeter but that didn't hurt my feelings any LOL I used walnuts instead of pecans but I imagine the pecans would be divine. Thanks for the recipe. It's a great one to have on hand for potlucks which I used this for. Plus, you can't get any easier than 5 ingredients, right?
