So I’ve discovered the joys of watching Gossip Girl. I know, I know- it’s high school. How can I even relate to these Upper East Side kids? I don’t know- but I do know how crazily addicting this show is.
My favorite character, naturally, is Blair Waldorf- and today’s recipe is in honor of her. It’s a bit sophisticated, unbelievably easy to make, and sooo tasty.
Wickedly Good Waldorf Salad
1 fuji apple, cored and chopped (I like it with the peel on)
half a cup walnuts, chopped
half a cup of celery, sliced thin
half a cup of red or green seedless grapes
4 tablespoons mayonnaise (please use Hellman’s or Best Foods real mayonnaise. Makes all the difference!)
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
salt & pepper to taste
green butter lettuce (my choice)- or any good, fresh, crispy lettuce
Whisk together the mayonnaise and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Mix in apple chunks, celery slices, chopped walnuts and whole grapes. Serve on lettuce.
You know you love me… XOXO!
