Waldorf Salad Wraps

Waldorf Salad Wraps

I love New York City in the Spring! The hustle and bustle of the crowds, the sights and colors…so exciting! My husband and I like to have a drink in the Waldorf-Astoria lounges – either the Bull & Bear or Peacock Alley…so elegant and absolutely lovely. For today’s post I’m sharing a take on a special salad that was created back in the 1890s by the maître d’hôtel Waldorf, Oscar Tschirky. This delightful salad has diced apples, thinly sliced celery, crunchy walnuts and is mixed with a mayonnaise-based sauce. I add a handful of seedless black grapes and wrap it up in Boston lettuce leaves for a light lunch…truly delicious!

Gather your ingredients. Dice the apples and slice the grapes in half.
