Waldorf Chicken Salad Mini Croissant Sandwiches


So my Hubby is a CPA and this time of year his firm is hopping with tax returns! During this season I always make lunch on Fridays for the wonderful people who work with and for him. Last Friday I made little sandwiches filled with a version of Waldorf Salad. Since all the girls wanted the recipe, I decided to blog it for them. I did end up using an ingredient I had never used before. Needing to make 20 of these little gems and finding that one whole rotisserie chicken wasn’t enough I went to my Covid cupboard and pulled out some canned chicken I had purchased at Sam’s Club. I was hesitant to use them since I have never used canned chicken before, but was surprised how well they enhanced and stretched the salad. I love happy accidents! Continue reading

Poached Chicken & Grape Salad

Poached Chicken & Grape Salad
Today my Hubby and I enjoyed a delicious poached chicken and grape dish. I was in the mood for a kind of Waldorf salad, but didn’t want to go to the store so I used what I had in the kitchen. Trying to keep it light I used less sour cream and mayonnaise and more Greek yogurt. I love getting little bites of cool, crunchy and sweet all in one. We ate them in little Boston Bibb cups but I think a grainy bread would be great too. We will definitely be having this for lunch tomorrow too!  Continue reading

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! Continue reading
