I must admit, Waldorf is s/thing I don't think I've ever made. I've eaten traditional Waldorf salad, but ii just didn't get me all excited to go home and make some. Maybe with a yogurt dressing I'd try it, but the idea of mayo and apples just doesn't do it for me, I love both, but together?

I've got OCD--Obsessive Chicken Disorder!

Buon Giorno Dave,

Thank you for posting the map of Maryland ... I had never known until 2 minutes ago, that there was a town called Waldorf in Maryland ...

Normally, when I have thought of Waldorf, I think of the grand five star hotel in Manhattan ! and their spectacular Japanese Restaurant inside.

Thanks for feedback.
Ciao. Margi.

Buon Giorno CWS,

My Waldorf does not contain any Mayonnaise at all, as I am allergic to the bottled perservatives in it.

Furthermore, I make mine with sautéed chicken breast ... It is the fashionable, not traditional take on the salad ... I also combine lettuces verses using only 1 lettuce variety.

It is quite lovely for a lunch on a scalding day.

Have nice wkend and thanks for your feedbk.
