    I think the original waldorf salad was simply celery, apples, and fresh mayo.

    I'd add celery and apples to the above, and serve it on butter lettuce leaves with fresh rolls on the side. Making your own mayo would definitely bring it to the next level, but I do enjoy Hellman's, myself.

      Yup, I like mine with celery, apples, walnuts, and raisins. Dried cranberries can work well also.

      I'm kind of obsessed with this product called Lemonaise (http://www.farawayfoods.com/lemonaise...), which makes everything better (tuna, sandwiches, etc.). They have it at Whole Foods - I buy the plain light kind.

      Are you looking to jazz it up a bit more than the basic recipe? You could add dried cranberries for additional sweetness, or add some spice to the mayo mix with some pepper and cayenne. Or hey - if you have a Penzeys store near you (or want to place a quick order) some Aleppo pepper would be nice!
