I can't begin to tell you how many recipes for waldorf salad I tried from this site and elsewhere before my husband finally said that "the sauce" was exactly right. I have to agree that this is by far the best recipe for waldorf salad. I think what makes it so good is the heavy cream and the nutmeg. When I made it, I used red delicious apples (because they are my motherinlaw's favorite apple), but I think it would be good with a less sweet apple, like a jonathan or macintosh, too. I used red, seedless grapes. My motherinlaw, who is 93, said it tastes like the waldorf salad that she made. At her age, I think she knows what traditional waldorf salad should be like, and this is it! Use fresh lemons, because that keeps your apples from browning as well as giving a little zip. I always prefer fresh lemon juice over concentrate. Thank you, June, sharing the perfect Waldorf salad recipe. My search is FINALLY over! :-)
