Waldrof Salad

Mamta Gupta

This is one of the first salads I learnt to make when I first came to England in late 60's. It is really easy to make, try making it sometimes.

Serves 4


  • 2 medium red apples

  • 2 celery sticks, cleaned and finely chopped

  • 1/2 cup walnuts, toasted and coarsely chopped

  • 1/4 cup Mayonnaise. You can use any good quality, ready made mayonnaise.

  • 1/4 tsp. salt, adjust to taste

  • A good sprinkling of freshly ground pepper

  • Juice of 1/2 a lemon/lime


  1. Core and and chop apples. Do not peel.

  2. Sprinkle lemon juice on top, this stops apples from discolouring.

  3. Place mayonnaise, salt and pepper in a bowl. Mix well.

  4. Add apple, celery and walnuts. Mix gently.

  5. Adjust seasoning.

  6. Transfer to a bowl, cover with a cling film* and chill.

  7. Serve on a bed of lettuce, as a side dish for a buffet or use it as a Sandwich filling or Taco shell or pitta bread filling, or as Jacket Potato topping.

  8. You can add a dash of chilli/hot pepper sauce/1 chopped green chilli, if you like things hot.

  9. You can add raisins or very finely chopped dates to this Salad.

  10. Also see Salad Selection


  • * I collect shower caps when I am travelling. They make excellent bowl covers. It is a shame you can't buy them in a supermarket, mush better than cling film.
