Classic Waldorf Salad at Miz Helen's Country Cottage

Classic Waldorf Salad
I often times receive requests for classic, vintage and old fashioned recipes. I have found that families are pretty much the same all over the world, the Grandma, a favorite Aunt, a Mom or Mother In Law made a favorite family recipe and never wrote it down, we have sure had that situation in our family. One of the most requested recipes that I am asked for is "that old fashioned fruit salad recipe that someone in that family made, and would you happen to have one that might be that recipe. I mentor a group of young homemakers and recently this is one of the recipes that they were asking for. Part of the purpose of Miz Helen's Kitchen is to preserve the integrity of our recipes that have been handed down though all of our families, as we help our younger generations become the kind of cooks they aspire to be.
