Cranberry Waldorf Salad


The Waldorf Salad boasts a heritage stretching back over a century, a testament to its time-honored appeal. Born in the illustrious Waldorf-Astoria in New York, this iconic dish has stood the test of time. Its classic combination of apples, grapes, celery, walnuts, and mayo captivates every generation. Our rendition introduces cranberries, infusing the traditional recipe with a vibrant winter twist.

This salad owes its name and legacy to its birthplace - the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel. Oscar Tschirky, the hotel's famed maître d’hôtel, crafted this dish for a charitable event benefiting St. Mary’s Hospital for Children in 1896. In its debut, the salad celebrated a minimalist beauty, combining just apples, celery, and mayo. However, as its recipe found a place in Oscar’s cookbook, walnuts made an appearance. Today, you'll often find grapes in the mix, and sometimes, even chicken or turkey, transforming it into a hearty meal.
