origin: Traditional (National&Religious)
The original recipe consisted only of diced red-skinned apples, celery, and mayonnaise. Chopped walnuts were added later to this now American classic.
Cut into thin strips the apple and celery root, place in a large bowl sprinkle with lemon juice to prevent browning. In a separate bowl, combine sugar, mayonnaise, sour cream, salt, and white pepper and mix it with celery - apple. Cover and refrigerate before serving. Shred the walnut and toast in a frying pan without any fat, it takes only 3-4 minutes. Let it cool down and before serving bestrew the top of the salad. Some prefer their Waldorf salad made with yogurt, instead of mayonnaise. Feel free to substitute yogurt for the mayonnaise if that’s your preference.
