Waldorf Salad

Waldorf salad lyrics, You’re the Top! by Cole Porter, 1934. …“You’re a Waldorf salad. You’re the top! You’re a Berlin ballad…” Here is my version of a delicious Waldorf salad.


3 apples, peeled and chopped
1/2 cup celery, chopped
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup red onion, chopped
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped

6 ounces baby spinach, rinsed and dried

The dressing

1 lemon, squeezed and strained
1/4 cup of mayonnaise
1 tablespoon sugar (optional)
1/4 cup of sour cream
1/4 cup of yogurt

Mix lemon juice, mayonnaise, sugar, sour cream and yogurt in a small mixing bowl.
Whip until well combined.

To prepare

Place apples, celery, raisins, onion and walnuts in a large mixing bowl. Fold the dressing into the apple mixture. Marinate in the refrigerator for several hours before serving. Serve on a bed of baby spinach or lettuce leaves.
