Also known as Waldorf Salad, this is my husband's choice. Some names and some recipes survive for generations. This one is the way he likes it. I think some people would add more ingredients, but he likes it simply prepared and with "his favorite mayonnaise "CAIN'S".

How To Make apple-walnut salad-ga's favorite

  • 1
    Rinse,core and dice apples. Leave the skin on for color! Use crispy,MACS, or GALA, or a combination of your choice. A sprinkle of lemon juice on the apples helps keep them from turning brown while preparing them.
  • 2
    Mix apples and walnuts, and spoon in enough mayonnaise to be moist, not soupy. Amount of apples, walnuts and mayo depends on how many servings you are making. I make enough for four people, as it tastes good when chilled after one day, but not much longer. Keep it covered tightly.
