Hey dearie
I think there are as many Waldorf recipes as there are potato salad recipes.

My Grandma made her version every Thanksgiving.
(I'll post my Grandma's first, then the typical one)

Grandma's Thanksgiving Waldorf:

2 apples, cored, but w/peels on & chopped (1 granny smith, 1 fugi)
3 stalks celery, chopped
1/2 bag pecans (you know, the size bag that choc chips come in)
2 bananas, sliced
1/2 jar marischino cherries, drained & quartered
1/2 bag mini marshmallows
1/2 c or more sugared date pieces

Mix in a big bowl. Then add dressing & mix well:
1 part sour cream
1 part sugar
1/2 part mayo
lemon juice to taste
------------------------
Here's the classic version:

As you can see, Grandma is a big sweets lover!
The cherries also make the dressing PINK!

I have always been a little scared to try waldorf salad because of the mayo. I love the fruit salad with strawberries, mini marshmellows, sour cream, and coconut though. Why do you put mayo in it anyway?

The may adds the needed thickening. Also, were you to omit the mayo it would be horribly sweet!

luvs and jkath, I have to side with katluvscake on this one. Something about mayo and apples in the same bowl just isn't right, IMO.

But I know I am in the minority, so no harm done.

~ may your dreams defy the laws of gravity ~

This made me laugh..last Wed. I had my hair cut short...she said "put your chin on your chest" I then said "I can't reach my knees with my chin" She has been doing my hair for 31 years so I can say about anything...( gravity isn't very kind....)

I really like the web site you sent us to. good recipes.
