Rich Creamy Dressing for Waldorf Salad

Waldorf salad is one of the most popular salad recipes ever. Comprising chopped apples, celery and walnuts, this delicious salad is usually served with a creamy dressing, although there are different variations when it comes to a good dressing for Waldorf salad. The following recipe blends pineapple and lemon juice with sugar, eggs, salt and whipped cream.

You need to use fresh whipping cream for this recipe; non-dairy whipped toppings will not do here. You will not get the right flavor or texture with those. You can whip the cream while the lemon juice mixture is cooling. It needs to be very stiffly whipped for the best results. That means keep whipping until it forms stiff peaks which do not fold down again. This creamy, fruity dressing is good with other salad recipes and you can drizzle it over mixed leaves and add some croutons for a very simple yet delicious salad.

There is no other salad quite like Waldorf salad, one reason for its timeless appeal. This crunchy, sweet, delicious salad deserves a wonderful dressing, which is why we have come up with this fantastic Waldorf salad dressing, so you can expect a wonderful result when you prepare this.

Although some people choose to switch up the classic Waldorf salad recipe, adding ingredients like potato, raisins and more, sometimes it pays to make the salad in the classic way, and in this case it would be walnuts, apple and celery. This salad is best made with a creamy dressing so we are making one from scratch, using pineapple juice and sugar for sweetness, lemon juice and salt to balance it out, and cream to give it the perfect consistency.
