A Classic Waldorf Salad Recipe

If you find yourself in that rare awkward situation where you must entertain picky Americans, please don't stray too far from this classic Waldorf salad recipe or we may just laugh at you and think of you as Basil Fawlty:-)

2 cups diced apples
1/8 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup chopped celery
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup seedless grapes sliced in half
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 pinch ground nutmeg

In a large bowl, toss together the apples and lemon juice. Stir in the celery, nuts, raisins and grapes. Let this sit covered in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes. Drain off excess juice.

Whip the heavy cream until you get fluffy peaks and it is semi-stiff.

Fold together the whipped cream and mayonnaise. Pour over salad and toss well.

Sprinkle with nutmeg and chill before serving.
