Waldorf Salad Recipe

waldorf salad

This Waldorf Salad Recipe comes from Carrie Gamble.

This delightful salad was named after the Waldorf Astoria hotel, where it was first invented.

It never goes out of style, with fresh crispy apples and celery, paired with the crunch of walnuts and the sweetness of raisins.

Carrie has put together a wonderful cookbook of her Grandmother’s best recipes, appropriately called Grandmother’s Cookbook.

Don’t let the Grandmother part of the title fool you. These wonderful recipes are timeless and will be as welcomed by your family and guests as they were in Grandmother’s day.

  • The traditional Waldorf salad recipe above does not call for any meat. You can turn this recipe into a lovely luncheon entree by adding chopped, cooked boneless chicken breast to the mixture before adding the salad dressing.
