In the 1890s, the famed Waldorf Salad was invented by the maître d'hôtel of the Waldorf Astoria in New York City. An instant success, the salad originally contained apples, celery and mayonnaise. Our version is more kid-friendly, and of course, contains walnuts.
1 cup julienne or shredded carrots
1 apple peeled, cored and diced
10-12 seedless grapes, cut in half
¼ cup walnuts
2 Tbsp sweetened coconut (optional)
¼ cup chopped dates (optional)
Waldorf Dressing Ingredients:
1/3 cup mayonnaise
2 teaspoon sugar
1 Tbsp lime juice
1 Tbsp walnut oil (optional)
Mix all salad ingredients in a medium-sized salad bowl.
Then whisk all dressing ingredients together in a small bowl. Drizzle over salad ingredients and toss gently before serving.
