Waldorf salad is a fruity and refreshing summer salad that is so easy to make. The crunch of apples and celery work so well with the rich mayonnaise dressing and provide a lovely freshness.
If you have ever wondered where this classic salad gets its name, the Waldorf salad is named after the Waldorf Astoria Hotel, where it was first presented in 1893. This classic American salad has stood the test of time, and it’s easy to see why. Some people like to use yoghurt to dress a Waldorf salad, but we’ve stuck with the classic mayonnaise. Using a good quality mayo makes this salad extra special. You could even try making your own mayo, if you’re feeling adventurous! The original recipe for a Waldorf salad didn’t contain nuts, but they were added at a later date, and we love the crunch and flavour they provide.
