WALDORF SALAD

 

  • Cooking Time:
  • Servings: 6
  • Preparation Time:

Ingredients

  • 3 or 4 apples, unpeeled, cut from the core, and chopped into bite size pieces (about 3 cups)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup raisins
  • 2/3 cup chopped celery
  • 1/3 cup walnuts
  • 1/3 cup Miracle Whip
  • 1 tablespoon sugar

Directions

  • Cut up 3 or 4 apples, until you get about 2-1/2 or 3 cups.
  • Sprinkle the lemon juice over the apples.
  • The acid in the lemon juice prevents the apples from turning brown.
  • The raisins will taste best if you plump them first.
  • Do this by measuring them into a cereal bowl and adding enough warm tap water to cover them completely.
  • Allow them to sit for a few minutes, absorbing the water, and softening up.
  • Drain them very well when you need them. I actually squeeze them to make sure they are very dry.
  • Chop up the celery, it should take about 2 ribs or so.
  • Add walnuts.
  • Mix everything together in a medium sized bowl with the Miracle Whip and sugar, coating all of the ingredients.
  • It is now ready to serve, or you can chill it overnight.

Notes

I like to use yellow & red apples to add color & taste. The leaves on the ribs of celery are also good. My momma always made this for the Forth of July And at Christmas, she'd add a touch of cinnamon.
