This is the trailer park version of the famed salad that was served and made famous at the Waldorf Hotel in NY as it uses cheap peanuts instead of pricer walnuts and Miracle Whip and whipped topping instead of real mayonnaise. This makes large bowl suitable for a carry in or family get together.



  1. How to cook a potato salad. Waldorf Salad - Step 1 1

    Chop apples into cubes - I used an apple corer first to remove the core, then cut the wedges into cubes.

  2. How to cook a potato salad. Waldorf Salad - Step 2 2

    Pour the lemon juice over the apple wedges and toss (prevents the apples from turning brown)

  3. 3

    Dice the celery (sorry, pic for this did not turn out)

  4. How to cook a potato salad. Waldorf Salad - Step 4 4

    In a separate bowl, mix the whipped topping, Miracle Whip and sugar together to make the dressing.

  5. How to cook a potato salad. Waldorf Salad - Step 5 5

    In a large bowl combine the apples, celery and dressing mixture and stir until apples and celery are well coated, then add the peanuts and toss until well mixed. Put in the refridgerator for at least 2 hours before serving to allow the dressing to soak in.
