Waldorf Salad

This is one of those easy to prepare salads, that really don’t need a lot of effort , but can still add a wow factor to your table.

This is not one of my Grandmother’s recipes, but a firm favourite of my hubby, and although it is not a salad I often make, it goes down a hit with anyone who tries it, as well as looking regal on your table no matter the occasion.

I used to make this whenever we set out to spend the day at the beach, or up the rock with the kids – back in the days when they were small – It is an easy to pack salad, and comes together relatively quickly, so you can have it fresh when you decide to eat.

The taste of crispy apples combined with roasted walnuts , tender raisins and crunchy celery is a heavenly combination, which is not only refreshing  to your palate, but also succulently tasty 😋.


2 medium heads of lettuce
1 cup roughly chopped toasted walnuts
3 or 4 small stalks of celery, Peeled, cleaned and thinly sliced - if your celery is medium or large sized then only use one or two stalks.
1/2 cup raisins - or you can substitute with 1 cup of red seedless grapes, sliced in half
2 apples, peeled, cored and chopped. You can use any type of apple you prefer.
6 tablespoons of Mayonnaise (or plain yoghurt - or a mix of both if you prefer)
Juice of half a lemon
Salt and pepper


Chop the apples and celery (and grapes if not using raisins) to bite sized pieces, and roughly chop the walnuts. Combine with the raisins (grapes) and set to one side.
In a medium sized bowl, mix the mayonnaise ( or yoghurt) lemon juice, salt and freshly ground pepper, and stir to combine them through.
Stir in the chopped ingredients and serve on a bed of lettuce. Refrigerate and serve cooled.
Couldn’t be easier. You can also chop up the lettuce and mix with the other ingredients for a different presentation as I did below. Waldorf salad cosykitchencorner style. Enjoy.
