Waldorf Salad

1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon salt
3 apples -- peeled, cored, and chopped (to prevent browning: drizzle some lemon juice/soak in salt water)
1 cup thinly sliced celery
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup raisins (I used fresh grapes sliced into two. why? cos the maincourse also had raisins..didn't want to bore my friends..hee..)
cumin powder (optional)
Black pepper to taste

1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, sugar, lemon juice, and salt.
2. Stir in the apples, celery, walnuts, and raisins. Chill until ready to serve.

Serves 4
recipe from all

Comments: First had this salad in was so good....i think cos my teacher made the mayo from scratch...
it's named 'Waldorf' salad cos it was invented by a chef in Hotel Waldorf Astoria in New York.
To use as a main course, add susuages and toss pasta through the salad. Can also add pineapple/ parsley...this is a very easily modifiable recipe.. :)
Next time, i will use raisins and perhaps a better quality (aka more egg than oil based) mayo n omit the lemon juice.
