A Waldorf salad has lots of good, healthy ingredients and leaves your regular, boring salad much to be desired.
It usually has a mayonnaise-based dressing, with celery, apples, nuts and grapes. This salad originated from New York City at the Waldorf Hotel in the 1890's.
Packed with crunch in every bite, you can serve this salad at your tea party along with some tea breads or scones.
