~waldorf wrap~

Mr. Hamilton: “I want a Waldorf Salad.”

Basil Fawlty: [Waldorf Salad is not on the menu] “I beg your pardon?”

Mr. Hamilton: “Get me a Waldorf Salad.”

Basil Fawlty: “Well, I think we just ran out of Waldorfs!”

~John Cleese, Fawlty Towers, 1979

We were in the mood for this crunchy-sweet salad yesterday, and I thought…Waldorf Wraps!

1 firm, tart-sweet apple, unpeeled, cubed

a couple handfuls green grapes, halved

1 stick celery, chopped fine

3 green onions, chopped with a little of the green tops

1 cup raisins or craisins

1 cup walnuts, coarse chopped

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked, cubed, chilled

1/3 cup to 1/2 cup real mayonnaise

salt and pepper to taste

a dash of celery seed (optional)

Combine all ingredients and chill until ready to use. Serve on a bed of salad greens, in a cantaloupe half, or as a wrap sandwich. Perfect with a tall glass of iced tea, lemonade, or cold-press coffee!

    These are really good. Like we do with the salad sometimes, we could try leaving the walnuts out and just have “dorf wraps”. I like recipes that are easy to adjust to taste… Less celery, more grapes, etc.

    Yum! I’m all for the “dorf” wraps. I do like walnuts, but only in certain things, but these sound and look delicious, either way. :)Thanks for sharing yet another fantastic looking dish for us to try!

      You’re welcome! “dorf” wraps are also good for people who are allergic to nuts 😉 Thanks for the comment!
