Parfait! Waldorf Coleslaw

Big plans for the coming weekend?

Socially distanced gatherings?

Need to bring a salad, but tired of the same old, same old?

Well, we can help!

I came across this recipe for Waldorf Coleslaw in an old (1960’s, I think) advertisement for Helmann’s One Step Coleslaw Dressing.

Apples and cabbage. Hmmm.

Hey, it works with pork chops and sausages, why not salad?

BTW – I made my own dressing, of course with Helmann’s mayonnaise; and this salad is most certainly a keeper.

•1/3 cup mayonnaise
•1 tbsp sugar
•1 tbsp lemon juice
•1 tsp vinegar
•1/4 tsp Seasoned Salt
•1/4 tsp black pepper
•1/4 tsp Aleppo pepper

•3 cups shredded cabbage
•1 apple, cored and diced
•1/2 cup diced celery
•1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
•1/4 cup diced red onion

Whisk the dressing ingredients together in a bowl, then add the cabbage, apple, celery, onion, and nuts, if using.

Toss to coat with the dressing, then cover and chill until ready to serve.

Note: walnuts are traditional in Waldorf salad, and the pecans are pretty darned terrific, but feel free to skip the nuts if you like. The salad with still be wicked tasty.
