Two Very Different Recipes For Waldorf Salad
By [http://ezinearticles.com/?expert=Linda_Carol_Wilson]Linda Carol Wilson
I wonder if the chef at the old Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City had any idea of the excitement his simple apple salad, named for the hotel, would create. I don't know which recipe for this salad was his original but the many variations are a tribute to his ingenuity. Waldorf Salad has become a staple on many holiday tables. I remember in my family it just didn't seem like Thanksgiving unless one of my aunts brought her Waldorf Salad to my grandparents house. But it is actually a good year-round salad, excellent for picnics, reunions, potlucks and many other occasions. Here we offer two very different vintage recipes for this simple, tasty "apple" salad. For the persons who tend like simple unadorned foods, we have a "Simple Waldorf Salad". For those who like things with more extras, we offer the dressed up version. Perhaps one will grace your table soon. Both are very tasty.
SIMPLE WALDORF SALAD
3 cups diced red delicious apples
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 cup diced celery

Toss the apples with the lemon juice to avoid discoloration. Add the celery, walnuts, and mayonnaise. Mix well. Refrigerate until serving time.
