I may have made a miscalculation when I increased this recipe but it seemed like there was far too much dressing for the amount of fruit/veg/nuts. I would definitely make it again - it just needs a bit of tweaking.
I can't begin to tell you how many recipes for waldorf salad I tried from this site and elsewhere before my husband finally said that "the sauce" was exactly right. I have to agree that this is by far the best recipe for waldorf salad. I think what makes it so good is the heavy cream and the nutmeg. When I made it I used red delicious apples (because they are my motherinlaw's favorite apple) but I think it would be good with a less sweet apple like a jonathan or macintosh too. I used red seedless grapes. My motherinlaw who is 93 said it tastes like the waldorf salad that she made. At her age I think she knows what traditional waldorf salad should be like and this is it! Use fresh lemons because that keeps your apples from browning as well as giving a little zip. I always prefer fresh lemon juice over concentrate. Thank you June sharing the perfect Waldorf salad recipe. My search is FINALLY over!:-)
Initially this recipe turned out too tart. First I think I should of used sweeter apples. I cut down the amount of lemon juice and added honey to sweeten it up. I did not have enough raisins for the recipe and I think it I had the right amount that would have made it sweeter as well. The day after Thanksgiving I added leftover turkey and it made a wonderful turkey waldorf salad!
