Well, after all the big dialogues of yesterday about not being tardy anymore, I am here to tell you all that I have failed miserably before I even started. Coming to think of it, it was more like stating a wish than an actual mission statement :D. So, the next time I declare that I am taking my future into my hands and all that stuff, feel free not to believe a word of what i say. Even I don’t believe it now a days ;-P
The thing is, my family is here (Told you I will come up with good excuses for my tardiness!). My brother is here in the US with his family. My dad is also there with them. I have been so excited about their trip for a while now. I have been shooting down all the invitations of our friends for the two weekends they are here. Yes, I turned down “food included” invitations, can you believe it? But in the end, my brother ended up being busy with some other plans and luckily for me, our friends took us in at the last minute. There is no end to the love that we get in this foreign country. I am blessed to have friends who treat us like family even when my family is visiting :-).
Anyway, I am here with Waldorf salad for W. Not with waffles, not with whoopie pies, not with winter vegetables. Waldorf salad for W.
Recipe source: Simply recipes
This salad can be modified a lot according to your preference. This is what I used – 1 apple, 1 stick celery, 1/2 cup grapes, 1/4 cup walnuts, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, 3 tablespoon mayonnaise (or thick yogurt), salt and pepper as needed. In a small bowl mix mayonnaise with lemon juice, salt and pepper.
Core and chop the apples into bite sized pieces. Halve the grapes. Thinly slice the celery. Add everything in a big bowl. Add the dressing. Mix well and refrigerate until serving time. Serve on lettuce leaves, with some freshly halved grapes on top.
