Recipe: Waldorf Salad

Salam alaikum!

A few days ago, I posted a picture of my favourite salad ever on instagram! I promised I'd post the recipe so here it is! (: 

I'm not really a veggie lover, I know I know what you're thinking! My mother nags at me all the time, "veggies are good for your skin!" I know you love me mum (yes, I know you're reading this heh) but argh I really cannot stand the taste of certain veggies, especially broccoli *shudders*

Hence why the Waldorf salad is my favourite! (:
Cos the ratio of ingredients: fruits>veggie 

If you've never tried it before, try making it! Its so simple! Especially for you to munch on at work/school instead of all those unhealthy snacks! 

Anws, here's a short history on the popular Waldorf salad hehe.

Waldorf salad : Created at New York's Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in 1896 not by a chef but by the maître d'hôtel, (dining room manager) Oscar Tschirky, the Waldorf salad was an instant success.
The original version of this salad contained only apples, celery and mayonnaise. Chopped walnuts later became an integral part of the dish. Waldorf salad is usually served on top of a bed of lettuce.

All you need is:

3 tablespoon of mayonnaise
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon of cracked black pepper
1/2 cup of red seedless grapes
1 sweet red apple
1/3 cup celery
lettuce (the quantity is up to you)
1/2 cup of walnuts

Mix your mayonnaise & lemon juice.

Add your cracked black pepper & salt

Chop your walnuts, slice your celery and grapes in half.

Mix all the ingredients together!

 Tada! Healthy snack! 

Have fun trying it out! I hope you'll love it as much as I do!
Its the perfect salad, with the right amount of crunch from the apples, celery & walnuts! Yum!

Much love friends,
