An excellent salad containing Apple, Celery, Walnuts and Mayonnaise – named after the eponymous New York hotel, where it was probably invented in the mid 1890’s – walnuts were a 1920’s addition.
The cheese is not traditional – but we feel to be recommended, but only if you have strong farmhouse, rather than soapy-textured Cheddar.
It will keep for a couple of days in the fridge, but once exposed to a warm room, shouldn’t be saved as the eggs in the mayonnaise might become a health risk.
