Apple Salad ~ Waldorf salad with raisins and pecans

Apple salad is one of my favorites.  I don’t eat nearly enough fruits so it is a good way to sneak in an extra bit of apple from time to time.  I enjoy mine with pecans and raisins; but sometimes I use walnuts or grapes instead.  The mayonnaise and marshmallows marry perfectly to make a deliciously creamy dressing.

Apple Salad

  • 2 Apples ~ I used Gala; just pick your favorite apple to eat
  •  1/4 cup thinly sliced celery
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 cups mini marshmallows
  • 3/4 cups mayonnaise
  • 1 lemon

Begin by pouring about a quart of water into a large bowl and adding the juice of 1 lemon.  Chop celery, raisins and pecans and add to bowl of lemon water.  Cut apples into quarters and remove core; dice apple into bite size pieces and add to bowl as well (the lemon juice will help keep the apples from darkening).  Allow to soak for a few minutes.  Drain well and add marshmallows and mayo.  Mix well; refrigerate for at least and hour before serving.  Makes about 5 cups.

Enjoy ~ Kimberly
