All hail Oscar Michel Tschirky for creating the Waldorf salad. As the dining room manager of New York’s Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, “Oscar of the Waldorf” created the salad for a charity ball back in 1893. But even though it originally contained only apples, celery, and mayonnaise, no one’s stopping you from adding some diced potatoes into the mix!


Makes 4-6 servings

4 cups Diced cooked potatoes (boiled, cooled and diced)
2 pieces Red apples, cored and diced (same size as potatoes)
2 cups Diced celery
¾ cup Walnuts (lightly toasted), halved
½ cup Mayonnaise
½ cup Sour cream
Salt and pepper, to season
Chopped chives or spring onions, for garnish
In a big mixing bowl, gently combine potatoes, apples, celery, walnuts, mayonnaise and sour cream. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Chill in the refrigerator. Top with chopped chives or spring onions before serving.
