My daughter asked me to make a Waldorf salad after are meeting with the Nutritionist. I haven't really thought of this salad in a long time. They are somewhat of a vintage dish.
Created by Oscar Tschirky of Switzerland, also known as "Oscar of the Waldorf". He worked for the Waldorf Hotel in New York City in the Late 1800's as maître d'hôtel. Developing many dishes this was one of his famous ones. Take note here he was not a chef. How ever he love to have picnics on his farm in New Paltz. Invited many chefs, family and friends to them. Later the farm became a retirement home for Chefs! It was not originally made with Nuts. They were added years later. Therefore mine does not have nuts. Although I did add that flavor to it.
