Excellent. I used Miracle Whip Salad Dressing instead of mayo and regular raisins instead of golden. Also added walnuts. As for the dressing, simply add and mix until you get the consistency you want instead of pouring it all in at once.
There was way too much dressing, and all I could taste was the mayo. I washed off all the dressing and re-made it without the mayo, added walnuts, and it was delicious. I also used crasins instead of rasins. Without the mayo, I'd give it 5 stars!
Outstanding Waldorf. I used Honey Crisp apples along with Granny Smith. I have made this salad many times and my family loves it with whipped cream or with mayo.
Good flavor - I took the advise of other reviewers and made 1/2 the sauce. I used enough to coat the salad well and UNfortunately threw the left over out. The salad does absorb some of the dressing, so I wish I had kept it and RE-coated before serving, as I had made the salad up several hours in advance. I will make it again and Keep the left over sauce, just in case!
Whatever you do, DO NOT use as much dressing as this recipe calls for. I added the apples, raisins and celery to the mayo/whipped cream mixture and, after mixing, you couldn't even tell there were in the bowl. I ended up dumping half of it into a colander and washing off the dressing and then returning the washed off portion to the bowl. Otherwise, it wouldn't have been a salad; it would've been a soup. You could easily get away with 1 cup mayo and 1 cup whipped cream.
Good recipe. The addition of whipped cream made it appealing to kids, too. We used red/green grapes instead of raisins. And we added chopped pecans. It seemed like there was too much dressing, tho, so we just strained the fruit a bit and it was great!
Yummy, but made too much dressing. I used cool whip and did not add any sugar so it was not too sweet. Will make again with less dressing (or more apples!).
Best I've tasted! Party went wild!!!
