NOT Waldorf salad

I spent a few summers in Tulsa, Oklahoma with my Grandparents when I was a kid. I spent most of the time in the kitchen with my Nana. I learned how to make quite a few family dishes out there in good ‘ole Tulsa when I was 8…Tuna Casserole, Goulash, Apple Crisp, and what I was told was Waldorf Salad.

Turns out what I was told is Waldorf Salad is NOTHING like real Waldorf Salad.
Well, the apples and walnuts are the same, but other than that NOT EVEN CLOSE.


I think I cried the day I ordered a Waldorf Salad from a restaurant. There is a huge difference between a whip cream dressing and a mayonnaise dressing.

Huge difference. What the heck Nana?


It’s like me telling the kiddos that Chocolate Chip Cookies are Escargot. I wonder if my Nana was hiding around the corner in the restaurant that day just laughing her heart out.

Un-cool Nana, un-cool.


You guys want to help me come up with a new name?
