How To Make simple waldorf salad

  • 1
    Core the apples. Cut into bite-sized chunks. You can peel them, but I like to leave the peel on. It adds a nice color to the salad.
  • 2
    As you cut up the apple, place chunks in large bowl of water with the lemon juice added to the water, to prevent browning.
  • 3
    Drain apples. Combine remaining ingredients with apples & mayonnaise.
  • 4
    Chill before serving.
