Why I Love This Recipe

This is a classic Waldorf salad recipe with lightly sweetened apples and walnuts, brought together with a creamy mayonnaise and whipped cream dressing. We eat this every Thanksgiving.

Ingredients You'll Need

3 medium golden delicious or red delicious apples (about 2 to 2 1/2 cups cubed)
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 dash salt
1 cup thinly sliced celery
1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
1/2 cup cold whipping cream
1/4 cup mayonnaise
Mixed salad greens or lettuce leaves


Wash the apples but do not peel them. Core the apples and cut them into 1/2-inch cubes. Sprinkle the cubed apples with sugar, lemon juice, and salt. Add celery and nuts and toss to blend.

In a medium bowl with an electric mixer, whip the cream to stiff peaks.

With a rubber spatula or spoon, gently fold the mayonnaise into whipped cream.

Fold mayonnaise and cream mixture gently into apple mixture.

Serve the salad on mixed salad greens or large lettuce leaves.
