The Waldorf Astoria is closing but you can make its famous salad with this classic recipe.

Later versions of the salad commonly added chopped walnuts. If you'd like, toss 1/4 cup of them in with the celery and apple.

Ingredients

    • 1 medium ripe apple
    • 1 stalk celery, chopped
    • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
    • Salt and pepper
    • 2 cups lettuce, torn into bite-size pieces

Preparation

Peel apple and cut into halves. Remove core and slice halves into 1/4-inch thick pieces. Reserve 4 slices. Cut remaining slices into thin strips.

In a medium bowl, mix celery, mayonnaise and apple strips; season with salt and pepper to taste. Plate the mixture over lettuce and top with reserved apple slices.
