Waldorf Salad


I love to make various salads and usually combine the vegetables and fruits with different type of dressings. My love started when I bought a small book Salads while travelling in a Mumbai Local Train.

 Though small the book is a treasure house of various salads and there are still many recipes which I yet have to make. This particular Wakdorf salad is a family favourite and is always a hit at get togethers and parties.

This salad is very simple and is very delicious . So make it whenever you have apples and walnuts handy.







Ingredients :

2........................large juicy apples
1/2 cup..............chopped walnuts
1.......................lemon ( squeezed into juice)
1 tsp.................sugar
2 tbsp..............finely chopped coriander leaves



Ingredients : ( Eggless Mayonnaise)

1 cup.................thick curd ( hang it in a muslin cloth for 1 hour)
1/2 cup ..............fresh cream
1/2 tsp..............pepper powder
1 tbsp...............olive oil
1tsp....................sugar




Method :

Wash the apples thoroughly and cut them into cubes.
Apply sugar and sprinkle the lemon juice on the cubes and chill them till further use.
This prevents the apples from turning black.
Now take the hung curd in a bowl and add fresh cream ,sugar, salt , olive oil and pepper powder.
Whip it till smooth .
This dressing is a good substitute for mayonnaise and can be used as veg mayonnaise in salads.
While serving mix the chilled apples with this sauce add walnut pieces and mix well.

  8. Dressing looks very creamy. I still haven't acquired the taste of fruits in salads, unless it is a fruit salad.
