This is a variation of the classic salad with apples, grapes, celery and nuts. If you aren't a walnut fan, pecans make an excellent substitute. Creamy salad dressing can be substituted for mayonnaise.

Very easy recipe. I used gala apples. I also added more walnuts and grapes. I had quite a bit of leftover dressing so I omited about a 1/4 cup of it. Chilled it for about an hour before serving and my husband loved it. This is certainly a keeper. Read More

Wasn't like the Waldorf I remember as a child... it was a little too sweet. Added celery salt and it brightened it right up. Read More

I wanted to try something healthier with this recipe so I did make a few changes. I omitted the salad dressing/mayo and took a large container of whipped cream and added in warmed up package of cream cheese. I also doubled the recipe used granny smith apples and stirred in a bag of mini marshmallows. I also used a bag of glazed walnuts because they were less expensive. I made it for a ladies fellowship. Was loved by all. and they even took the leftovers home. Read More

This was really good. I used granny smiths. I didn't have walnuts so I used chopped candied pecans. I also added a couple of small scoops of sour cream. I will definitely make this again. Read More

Delicious! I had to add some mini-marshmallows though or my kids would have been severely disappointed. The sprinkling of nutmeg added a nice flavor. This was a great addition to our Easter table. Read More

Very yummy recipe that reminds me of egg nog (because of the mayo and nutmeg). I used light mayonnaise and instead of cream fat free Cool Whip. I had no lemon but I think the salad came out great regardless. I added cauliflower and diced boneless/skinless chicken breast. Tomorrow for lunch I will be eating this salad on a whole wheat pita but it also tastes amazing on its own! Read More

This was a good unique salad. It turned out just a bit mayonaise tasting so next time I will definately reduce the mayo input. Read More
