Waldorf salad was created by Oscar Tschirky in 1896 at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, New York, New York, in the United States of America.

Procedure[edit | edit source]

  1. Slice the apples into wedges, and place in a bowl.
  2. Pour lemon juice on the apple wedges, and ensure a light coating to prevent browning.
  3. Plump the raisins by placing them in warm water for 5 minutes, then drain well.
  4. Mix celery, raisins, and walnuts into the bowl of apple wedges.
  5. Mix the mayonnaise and sugar together, then pour into the apple mixture, ensuring a light coating on all items.
  6. Chill for at least 30 minutes
  7. Place 3 lettuce leaves on a large plate and three on another, place half of the mixture on each set of leaves, and sprinkle 5 cherries on each salad.
  8. Serve

Notes, tips, and variations[edit | edit source]

  • Though the original salad only used apples, celery and mayonnaise; walnuts mixed in have become an integral part of the modern version of the salad and cherries are only used as a sweet addition to further the contrasts within the salad.
  • Instead of raisins, try using grapes to create the same sort of taste but more wholly and not as rich.
