AFC Waldorf Astoria (WA) Salad

AFC WALDORF ASTORIA SALAD

Although Waldorf Salad was popular in my day (and I’m 70 years old), it was more popular in my parents’ and grandparent’s time. 

~ “The name comes from the fact that the Waldorf salad was first created for a charity ball given in honor of the St. Mary’s Hospital for Children on March 14, 1896, at the Waldorf-Astoria hotel in New York City” (wikipedia).

I never knew that till just now. Considering it’s so old and probably still as good, I’m taking a leap with this original recipe on behalf of the children of all the biological parents used for research to cure sick human kids. May that day come quickly.

I read the other day in an internet article that the universe was moving too fast – well, not fast enough for those who suffer. I’ve got the pedal to the metal. I’m all for a high speed vehicle on the shortest route between two points out of a hell that promotes terrorism against anyone who moves.

Makes about 4 cups glazed walnuts; 4 cups Waldorf dressing and for this recipe 8 cabbage and grape servings
