Ingredients:
apples cored and cut into bite size pieces
1 cup of celery, diced
1 cup of walnuts, chopped (I chopped the walnuts and lightly toasted them under the broiler)

1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 lemon, juiced
1/2 teaspoon salt
My Mom loved Waldorf Salad. It was on our Christmas Table every year. I think it also made an appearance on our Thanksgiving Table too. I haven’t had this in many years. This is her recipe and Mommy, this is for you.
Waldorf Salad was created at the Waldorf Astoria in New York by a dining room manager in 1896. The original recipe only had apples, celery and mayonnaise. My Mom’s recipe also had walnuts.
Nut apples, chop celery and nuts and set aside in a large bowl. Mix dressing up in a separate bowl and pour on top of apples, celery and walnuts. Mix well, refrigerate and enjoy.
Side note, this is the identical bowl I used to eat my Waldorf Salad in when I was growing up. Straight out of the 1960`s, This is a Blenko bowl and I have a set of 7. I own 6 small bowls and one larger salad bowl. I treasure these and my Mom`s recipe.

We had this too! Only, I’m guessing Mom used (cringe) Miracle Whip in it. I do love the crunch!
