Waldorf Salad Recipe


Introduced to the United States in 1972, Granny Smith apples have light green skin with a juicy, crisp flesh inside. Used in baking, they are also eaten raw. This apple originated in Australia in 1868 and is named after Maria Ann Smith who first grew it from a chance seedling.

Autumn decorations, teacher desks and school lunches all bring apple images to mind. Add to that the many wonderful apple recipes for baking and this fruit is a sensational way to celebrate Mother Nature’s beautiful bounty.

One of my favorite apple recipes is Waldorf Salad. This particular recipe is made ahead of serving time with a bonus that the apples DO NOT turn brown after they are added to the mixture. Cut, slice, add ingredients and enjoy. YUM!
