Picked from the Tree: Waldorf Salad

I come from a long line of divine cooks.  Their recipes were written on hundreds of little cards and shared. Eventually some of those cards were passed on to me.  Every once in a while I like to pull one of those recipes from my ‘family tree’ and get all nostalgic.  ’Picked from the Tree’ is a series where I document those recipes from my family tree and maybe share a memory or two.

I don’t have one specific memory  of eating this recipe.  It was more like a staple of my childhood.  It was served with almost every meal during the summer and fall at my grandmothers house. And boy did I love it (and still do!).

I do remember once, when I was maybe 10, asking my mom why it was called Waldorf Salad.  That’s when I found out about the Waldorf Astoria in New York City and how they served this salad.  I made a goal then and there to go there someday.
