Honeycrisp Waldorf Salad


By Lori Taylor

Waldorf Salad – a classic way to enjoy apples!  This salad was born in the 1890’s at the Waldorf Hotel in NYC.  Each household & chef makes the Waldorf Salad in their own unique way but 1 ingredient always stays the same: APPLES.

Try one of my favorite recipes for Waldorf Salad!  This one is from Superfresh Growers, but you know how I like to be bossy… Their recipes calls for apples, please Produce Moms… use HONEYCRISP APPLES.  And this makes enough for a crowd.  Perfect for impressing the neighborhood PTA moms or your in-laws 😉
