OS­CAR Tschirky, the leg­endary maître d’hô­tel at the Wal­dorf, is cred­ited with cre­at­ing the Wal­dorf salad. He de­vel­oped many dishes dur­ing the 1800s, and launched his cook book Os­car of the Wal­dorf in 1896. We have added a few in­gre­di­ents to this sig­na­ture salad, for ex­tra flavour. En­joy spe­cial peo­ple; it’s easy to make, and healthy, mouth­wa­ter­ing food for the whole fam­ily. 1 let­tuce

1 cup wal­nuts, slightly toasted 2 sweet ap­ples, cored and chopped 3 sticks of cel­ery, thinly sliced

1 cup seed­less grapes, sliced in half Freshly ground black pep­per

Whisk may­on­naise, honey and lemon juice to­gether in a medium-size bowl. Ar­range let­tuce, add ap­ples, cel­ery and grapes.

Sprin­kle wal­nuts and driz­zle dress­ing over the salad.
