Comments: First had this salad in Switzerland...it 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.
The four of us started this blog together as a way to share our experiences and lessons in the kitchen. Now the blog has evolved into an random mix of recipes which we have tried and liked enough to want to share...some are dishes that remind us of home, some are things that we wouldn't usually have made in Singapore (muffins, cakes and most dishes requiring the oven) and others were just borne out of a need to use a certain ingredient!
Have a browse and have fun trying out the recipes!
