Waldorf Salad


— A family favourite!

This super easy salad is a family favourite!

My mum used to make it for my sisters and I when we were growing up. I remember thinking it was super fancy as it's named after the Waldorf Astoria hotel in New York.

Ingredients: Lilydale Free Range Roast chicken, mayonnaise (I'm a life long fan of Praise- something Mum always had in the fridge), big bunch green grapes, 2-3 sticks celery, 2 Granny Smith apples, a couple of good handfuls of walnuts (as many or as little as you'd like)

Method: Remove all the white meat from the Lilydale Free Range Roast chook and place in a decent sized salad bowl. Next put in the green grapes, slice up the celery into medium sized pieces, cut up the apples and then place all the ingredients into the salad bowl. Add the walnuts (I like a lot because they add a delicious crunch to the salad). Finally generously squeeze the mayo over the salad and give it a good stir to make sure it's all mixed through. Season with salt and pepper. Serve with crusty bread.

Success rate: Four out of four family members loved this salad! However I do take the celery and walnuts out for my smallest daughter. This is an ideal summer salad. And it's my favourite type of 'cooking' since all that you need to do is chop and assemble!

I'll leave the final word on Waldorf with Fawlty Towers, a show that I adored watching with my Mum.
