Apple Celery Salad with Popcorn Seasoning

20 minutes total

Makes 4 - 6 servings
Print recipe

The apple and celery salad debuted in New York at the Waldorf Astoria in 1893...

and while the hotel’s been closed for conversion to condos, its eponymous salad lives on. Originally made with just apples, celery, and mayo and served on lettuce, “Waldorf salad” now appears on menus with ingredients ranging from grilled chicken to blue cheese.

Inspired by the simplicity of the original, this version uses readily available winter produce, a handful of pantry staples, and a simple vinaigrette enriched with a dollop of mayo. While you can stop there and still have a very tasty salad, a spicy salt blend meant for popcorn adds even more flavor.

"While celery's ribs provide both flavor and crunch, the pale green leaves hiding inside are the best part."
