Your recipe sounds delicious and I'm planning on making it for Thanksgiving. I need to make some dishes ahead. Do you think this would be ok to do 1 or 2 days ahead?

my dad used to make a waldorf salad every year for turkey day and I loved it but hated the mayo he used in it so I concocted my own version of it!!! This is a favorite every year and there are NEVER leftovers
