If you don't care for the mayonnaise dressed Waldorf Salads, this one is for you. It's from my grandmother and probably from the period of the 1930's or so. It's ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! I could eat this for dessert, and when I make it usually double or quadruple the recipe so I can send some home with everyone after the holiday dinner.
It's best to make the dressing ahead of time so it has time to cool. I usually make it the day before the dinner so it's done and out of the way and ready to go when the salad is assembled the next day.
