Waldorf Salad

Waldorf salad originates from the 1800s. It was created by Oscar Tschirky, aka "Oscar of the Waldorf", in Waldorf-Astoria hotel in New Your City. Today, there are many variations of this salad. You can also add your own touch to it.


Juice from 1 lemon
2 celery stalks
2 apples
1 orange
3 Tbsp mayonnaise
1 cup whipping cream
1 cup crushed walnuts
salt and pepper to taste

Peel apples and celery and chop into small pieces (you can also shred them, or cut into thin strips, depending on how you want your arrangement to look like), and immediately place them in lemon juice to prevent them form turning dark. Then add the other ingredients and mix.

Serve over lettuce. Whole walnuts and lettuce pieces can be used for decoration.
