Waldorf Salad

  • Difficulty: Ultra Basic
  • 20 minutes
  • One serving

This is not Tschirky’s original Waldorf salad. Instead, we played a little with the ‘classical’ recipe. We kept the walnuts, apples, and celery, but we substituted grapes with pineapple and tossed cognac-soaked dried fruits into the mix. No mayonnaise! And no bed of lettuce or other leafy greens, this time. Try it. It’s good!

Ingredients

3 tablespoons dried fruit mix
1-ounce cognac
1 canned pineapple, diced
1/2 celery root, shredded
1 apple, grated
4 tablespoons walnuts, crumbled

Steps

  1. Add the dried fruits to a smaller bowl and pour the cognac over them. Let them soak for 15 minutes.
  2. Add the pineapple, celery root, and apple to a bowl and mix.
  3. Strain the cognac-soaked dried fruits, add them to the fruit mixture bowl and mix them in. Discard the cognac.
  4. Top with the crumbled walnuts and serve.
