The most interesting thing about Waldorf salads are their fresh sweet, nutty taste. This is especially excellent for those summer get-aways and even as an appetizer or the Christmas holidays. It has a cheery taste, certainly separate from the usual green salad with vinaigrette.

While, of course, it is always a mtter of taste, Waldorf salad is highly rich in texture. Though the level of difficulty in making this salad is somewhat higher compared to tossed salads, there is still basically nothing to putting up a great appetizer such as this one. Below are some fantastic Waldorf Salad preparations that would be perfect for the coming holidays. Indulge!
