Another variation of Waldorf Salad. This adds a twist to the usual Waldorf Salad, and yet is still fantastic. We love this variation with chicken added....See what you think! This is another Jeremy Vincent find in my favourite paper. Jeremy writes: Waldorf salad is traditionally made of fresh apples, celery and walnuts, dressed in mayonnaise, and usually served on a bed of lettuce. The salad was first created in the 1890s at the Waldorf Hotel in New York City and Oscar Tschirky, the maitre d'hotel, is widely credited with creating the recipe. The salad became so popular, Cole Porter featured it in his 1934 song You're the Tops. Along the way the original Waldorf salad has been tweaked, to accommodate different ingredients and tastes, though thankfully the original heroes are rarely completely discarded. Ingredients such as chicken, turkey, grapes and dried fruit (such as dates or raisins) are sometimes added. The dressing, too, can be fare game, as this variation shows.
