I guess you could say today's salad is Bill Cosby meets the Astors. This is a molded Jello version of a Waldorf salad. I'm not quite sure how Oscar of the Waldorf would feel about this version of his signature creation. But I wouldn't hesitate to serve this salad up to any guest at my table. I remember this salad being served at family get togethers.
Jell-o Waldorf Salad
1 package (3oz) lemon jell-o
1 cup boiling water
1 cup cold water
1 Tbsp lemon juice
¼ cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
1 unpeeled diced apple
1 cup chopped celery
¼ cup chopped walnut or pecans
Dissolve Jell-o in boiling water. Set aside. Mix cold water, lemon juice and salad dressing. Stir well to combine. Stir salad dressing mixture into dissolved Jell-o. Place bowl in refrigerator until mixture has thickened so it will mound when dropped from a spoon.
Stir in apples, celery and nuts. Pour into a lightly oiled mold or bowl.
Chill over night. Unmold salad onto serving plate and serve.
You got to admit this looks good...
