Waldorf Salad Recipe

The Waldorf Salad was created in the late 1900’s at the Waldorf Hotel, New York. The Waldorf Maître d’hôtel, Oscar Tschirky is credited with creating the classic recipe. The original Waldorf Salad Recipe which was published in his cook book did not contain nuts. Since then, however nuts have been a staple addition to this favorite classic. Thanks to my niece Amisha for this contribution.

Quite effortless to prepare, this is a delightful crisp and crunchy, fresh salad that everyone should try for sure. Since very few ingredients are used, the quality of the ingredients indeed play a vital role.
