This was okay. I like regular Waldorf Salad better. I won't make this again.

This was very good. I used cinnamon instead of cayenne pepper and pecans instead of walnuts but I got lots of compliments last week and I'm going to make it again tonight.

Excellent! The cayenne adds a nice kick (don't omit it; it's very subtle), and the bleu cheese does add a certain creaminess, again, without dominating. I used GrannySmith and Braeburn apples....

Perfect! I used pecans instead of walnuts because that's what I had, and served this on baby red lettuce. Mister said several times that the salad was great, and I thought so too. Thanks!

This really hit the spot! I followed a reviewer's suggestion and added a chicken breast to make it a dinner salad (great served with Jiffy corn muffins). I used Braeburn apples -- nice and cru...

Pretty good. I like the addition of bleu cheese. I'm not sure I liked the cayenne pepper. I might try leaving that out next time. A good side dish that whips together quickly.

This is definitely a keeper. I fixed this recipe for my husband and I for dinner and we both thought it was delicious. We loved the combination of flavors. I wouldn't change a thing.

Good recipe. My husband declared that he likes Waldorf Salad and ate up the last of it. I used feta cheese because I did not have blue. It is pretty salty so it did not need the extra salt.

It's recipes like this that make food fun. Sometimes when you have so many different flavors, it can be too much all at once beacuse they compete against each other rather than compliment each ...
