Marshmallow Waldorf Salad

  • 3 cups cubed apples
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 cup miniature marshmallows

  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • Mayonnaise
  • Lettuce

Sprinkle apples with lemon juice. Add marshmallows, celery nuts and enough mayonnaise to moisten. Toss lightly, serve on lettuce.
Recipe 1974

Waldorf Salad

Mix equal quantities of finely cut apple and celery, and moisten with Mayonnaise Dressing. Garnish with curled celery and canned pimentos cut in strips or fancy shapes.

An attractive way of serving this salad is to remove tops from red or green apples, scoop out inside pulp, leaving just enough adhering to skin to keep apples in shape.

Refill shells thus made with the salad, replace tops, and serve on lettuce leaves.
