2 1/2 tablespoons
distilled white vinegar
apple - peeled, cored, and chopped
1 large stalk
salt and pepper to taste
I added more apple and celery than the recipe called for. I also plumped the raisins by microwaving them in some water for a minute and toasted the walnuts. I took the advice of other reviewers and reduced the vinegar to about 1 3/4 tablespoons and added about a 1/2 tablespoon of sugar. It turned out tastey!
For all of you who changed this recipe: the only thing wrong here is there is no need to add vinegar. otherwise it is a perfectly normal Waldorf salad. I think it could be only in America that someone would add cranberries to a waldorf - this salad was invented by a chef at The Waldorf in New York for goodness sake. you can't add cranberries and call it a Waldorf salad.
Very simple and delicious. I used two red delicious apples and 1/2 cup of celery. I also added 1/2 cup of red grapes halved. When it came to the dressing I whisked 1/4 cup mayo, 1/4 c. Miracle whip, 1/2 tsp. of white sugar, and 1 & 1/2 Tbsp. of cider vinegar vs white vinegar.
The vinegar was a unique touch, although it might be less tart with a lesser amount. I added 1 tsp of sugar to cut the tartness of the vinegar. Next time I'll just cut back on the vinegar a little. Thanks for sharing, Mary...
Nice combination of flavors and textures in this salad but I found the dressing way too sour for my liking. Next time I will use less vinegar than called for or maybe leave it out altogether.
This was a simple recipe but I had to triple it to feed a family of 4.
It wasnt very tasty.
I followed TYRIX16 suggestions. In a nutshell: I doubled the celery and apple in this recipe and left out the walnuts (had none on hand). I mixed the sugar and vinegar, then as I chopped the 2 apples I tossed them in the mixture to keep them from browning. Then added the celery and plumped raisins. Then the mayonnaise sparingly to cover the ingredients. No need for salt or pepper for me.
