Original Waldorf Salad
A great summer salad or starter salad to go with a chicken dinner.
A quote from Jean Pare: "Although the original salad of the Waldorf Astoria Hotel is reported not to contain walnuts. It has become a natural ingredient."
I think the addition of grapes has been used in some variations of this salad as well.
I have made this salad and it was well received. Hopefully you will like it too.

- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (this is in recipe but i leave it out)
