Waldorf salad


Macaroni salad

  • 300 GRAM MACARONI, cooked and cooled
  • 4 RADISHES, sliced
  • SOME GREEN ONIONS, chopped
  • 50 GRAM ROQUEFORT, in cubes
  • 100 GRAM GOUDA CHEESE, in cubes

Put the lettuce in a bowl. Mix the apples with the kohlrabi and the pineapples and spoon this mixture on top of the lettuce. Beat the mayonnaise together with the ginger syrup, the lemon juice and pepper and salt to taste and pour this sauce over the vegetables. Sprinkle the walnuts on top.

Waldorf salad was created in the Waldorf Astoria hotel in New York in 1896. It was originally a combination of apples, mayonnaise and celery.

My favourite characters from the Muppet Show, Waldorf and Statler (the old grumpy hollow laughing guys from the balcony) are also named after this hotel, adding attraction to the salad.

Put macaroni, radish, both cheeses, onions and bean sprouts in a large bowl and toss. Stir in the yoghurt and pepper and salt to taste. Put the lettuce leaves on a large plate and spoon the macaroni salad on top. Decorate with some radish and cheese.
