Cooking with Collin: Waldorf Salad

Today’s Cooking with Collin recipe is an absolute favorite of mine and is perfect if you need something sweet and delicious for an Easter dinner, Mother’s Day brunch, Bridal Shower, Baby Shower etc. It is really the perfect dish for a snack, dessert or even breakfast. …And it’s incredibly delicious and simple to make!

Today, I am going to show you how to make oh-so-yummy Waldorf Salad. Please note that the recipe below makes 6-8 servings; however, I usually double the recipe to make it last at least 24 hours in my household. 😉

Waldorf Salad (Source: 1st Traveler’s Choice Internet Cookbook)

5 red and yellow delicious apples, diced (unpeeled)
One 8-ounce can pineapple tidbits (drained)
1 cup seedless red or green grapes cut in half
1 cup chopped walnuts
For the Dressing:
1/2 cup sugar (or substitute with Splenda)
1/2 cup pineapple juice
1/2 cup cream or evaporated milk
2 Tablespoons butter
1 Tablespoon flour
One 8-ounce carton Cool Whip whipped topping or favorite whipped cream

Mix sugar, flour, cream, butter, and juice. Cook until boiling. Cool and then refrigerate. Fold in whipped topping or whipped cream. Mix with fresh fruit until it covers to suit your taste. Add nuts just before serving to avoid turning fruit dark.

Enjoy! 😀

    That looks delicious, as do all your recipes! I can’t wait to try it, thank you collin!

  2. Lisa

    I’m always at work when you post the “cooking with collin” recipe and contest. Any chance you could do it in the evening or on the weekend sometime so more people can participate?

    • Thea

      I agree and was just thinking the same thing! 🙂

    • Collin

      Sorry guys! I will definitely consider posting a future Cooking with Collin contest in the evening or on the weekend. 😀

      • Inna

        I agree with the ladies above. Im always at work when you do the contest… and looking at the pictures makes me hungry AND disapointed that I can’t perticipate in the Contests!!!!

  3. Vickie

    Our family makes this at Christmas/Thanksgiving…it is yummy…we don’t put in pineapple or cool whip. You can exchange many items too.
    Too bad I DON”T have a camera…I want to enter all these contests but can’t…kind of bummed.
    How about a contest for the long time/loyal peeps that have been with ya for a Very long time…before the lemon days:
    🙂 😉 Anyway, thanks for all you do…Happy Easter.

  4. kate

    hey collin – thanks! the “cream” – is that heavy whipping cream”?

    • Collin

      It works with Heavy Whipping Cream or Half & Half. 😀

      • kate

        one more silly ??? – the nuts turn the fruit dark?

  5. Chris

    Happy Easter, Collin!

    • Collin

      Happy Easter! 🙂

    This looks GREAT!! My mom used to make something called Waldorf Salad, but it was NOT this! It had some scary mayonaise base to it…BARF! I will certainly make this for my peeps! They’ll love it . 🙂

    • Amber R.

      I’ve definitily seen that salad at gatherings with the mayo, gross! Next time I see one of those Im totally giving that person this recipe.

      • Renny

        Right, I almost didn’t read it b/c I cannot stand the mayo version!! This, however, looks heavenly & makes me wonder why I didn’t think of it before…hmmm…& mmmmm!
        Thanks for the recipe, Collin. I will definitely be making this in the next few days!!

        • LindaB

          I like the original Waldorf Salad with mayo too. But this looks really yummy so I am gonna give it a test run on my family Easter!

      • Megan♥

        I know, the mayo version makes me want to puke!

        • fran

          Thats funny! I like the mayo version, just apples, walnuts, celery, and mayo.

          • Laura

            My mom makes a regular fruit salad with apples, oranges, bananas and mayo — it is the bomb! 🙂

          • Bee

            Yeah, the mayo one is the original version from the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel with only apples, celery and mayo served on bed of lettuce. Less of a dessert but more a salad.
            But I’ll eat just about any combination of fruit in a salad.

  7. Pam

    Looks SO good! Can’t make it now but maybe this weekend! thanks

  8. Amy

    this looks great! I have never had this before, but it looks so easy and so delicious! I always love new (and easy) recipes. Thanks!

  9. Tiffany

    Would love to have a picture to send! Thank you for sharing!

    An easy one my family likes is

    1 box banana pudding or vanilla
    1 carton of strawberries
    1 can crushed pineapple
    2 pkgs desert cakes

    I make the pudding, drain the pineapple and add. Then when time to serve put pudding on top of cups, top with sliced strawberries. My hubby likes his with milk, my sister likes her with vanilla ice cream and I like mine the way it is!!

    • holly

      what kind of dessert cakes? this is a fun one that you could have all types of versions. i am really wishing i had some nuts and energy today!! lol unfotunally the rainy weather does nothing for me haha..i was using my energy for coupon shopping but i think making this with my girl ater school is a better use of my tme/energy today!thanks collin <3 your site

      • Tiffany

        Holly, I use the ones that are located over by the produce. Kind of like a shortcake kind of bread. There are normally 6 or 8 little bread cups in them. It is so easy and yet so yummy! Hope you guys have a good afternoon!!!!

        • holly

          thanks i’m about to make a verion of both urs and collins.. i have been craving something w/ pineapple for awhile this sounds great!

  10. Melanie

    Looks delish!

  11. amber

    i love this salad and you made a preggo woman hungry.. so it is made and the pic is sent 🙂 my kids love it although we make ours a little different from yours but just as YUMMY!!!

  12. Dayna

    That sounds good, I think i will make it to take to the family Easter dinner Sunday. We usually just do the 1/2 cool whip, 1/2 cottage cheese, a can of drained crushed pineapple mixed together and then sprinkled with dry jello [for color and a little taste]

  13. SN

    Hi there, I sent you a picture but I made a BIG mistake and sent you another one .. Hope you got it :O


    This is very off topic! But I was wondering if anyone knows of any super good diaper deals this week… I just found out today I will have to be induced on monday (also my birthday) do to low amniotic fluid. I am all stocked up on newborn but now I am going to need PREEMIE!! Any ideas ladies?!?!

    • holly

      aww congrats!!! i’ll try to look! how premie? girl or boy! good luck

      • JENNIFER

        He will be 36 weeks so not to small I don’t think but my son was 7 at full term and was literally swimming in newborn diapers! I am so excited to have him here but wish he could have had a little longer to “COOK”!

  15. natalie

    I have all the ingredients at home… but I am on my way to work! Nuts!!

  16. Collin

    Thanks to everyone who participated in the Cooking with Collin contest today. We have our 5 winners so the contest portion has been removed from the post. 😀

    • Kelly

      Bummer – just missed it. Posed my sleeping baby with a bowl by his head and by the time I could upload it, it’s over…. 🙁

  17. anu1c

    there was a contest with this post? did I miss something?

    • Michelle

      I think it was the first 5 people that made the recipe and sent in a pic. Now that Collin has the 5, she has removed the contest wording from the post bc the contest is over.

  18. Stephanie

    we add chopped snicker bars to this too!

    • Melissa

      I do the same thing with the snickers. It really makes it good.

    • Collin

      Ooohhhh love this suggestion. I will definitely have to try this next time.

      • Sarah B

        I was just going to say the same thing!! We make it and call it Snicker Apple Salad- cool whip, milk, vanilla pudding, apples soaked in lemon juice (keeps the apples from turning colors!) and the best part- snickers!! My family makes this for every holiday/special occassion we have and it is always gone!

  19. patti

    i make this to but i use cream cheese with some powdered sugar and then mix some sour cream in for my base. this version looks great to!

  20. Takako

    Hi, just extra info for the ingredients… your store might have $1 off wyb season’s delight by Cool Whip AND regular Cool Whip peel coupon near by the area. I found it at my local store.

  21. Creshia

    Collin, That looks so yummy. I can’t wait to try this.

  22. Sharon

    I’ve always wanted to make this. I’ll be making it soon. I’m going to someone else’s home. I already know what i’m making.

  23. Charise

    I needed a salad recipie for easter lunch, this looks great! Thanks Colin!!!

  24. Carlie

    I love this salad. We usually mix the cool whip and half a carton of lemon yogurt. Throw in some mandrin oranges and flaked coconut with the other fruit..delicious

  25. katie

    I’m against Cool Whip !!!!
    Plz read ingredients on it.
