This is a traditional Waldorf salad made with apples, raisins, and walnuts and tossed with mayonnaise.  We think of this as a harvest-time salad but all that is really required are good crisp apples. You can usually get good apples year around but if you don’t have good apples, don’t bother making a Waldorf salad.


  • 3 cups coarsely chopped apples, about 3 medium apples
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup mayonnaise, or to taste
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
  • salad greens or lettuce


  1. Toss the apples with the sugar, salt, and mayonnaise to coat.
  2. Add the raisins, celery, and nuts.
  3. Serve on greens.
