THE EARLY WALDORF SALAD

This recipe was created just before the 1900s at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York.  It is still a popular salad today although the original recipe was a simple combination of apples, celery, and mayonnaise, nuts were later added and now other items are often added as well.

1 cup diced unpeeled red apples
1 cup sliced celery
1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
1 cup (or to taste) mayonnaise

In a mixing bowl, combine apples, celery and walnuts.  Lightly fold in mayonnaise until ingredients are coated.  Makes about 4 servings.
