This salad tops any Waldorf salad I have ever made! It's got the taste of apple salad with a little extra. I saw the original recipe in a Taste of Home recipe book but tweaked it to suit my taste.



Drain pineapple, reserving the juice. Set pineapple aside, in a saucepan, combine juice with sugar, eggs, and salt. Cook, stirring constantly, over a medium-low heat until slightly thickened (don't get impatient, it takes a little while to start to thicken.) Remove from the heat: cool.


Add pineapple, celery, apples, grapes, bananas and walnuts and mix gently.

Whip cream until soft peaks form. Fold fruit mixture into whipped cream.

Pour into a 9 x 12 inch casserole dish and freeze until firm. Let stand about 15 minutes at room temperature before cutting and serving. Serve on a lettuce lined plate for an appealing salad.

This is a bit of a different spin on traditional Waldorf salad. It has been in my late husband's family for years and was always a staple on our Thanksgiving, Christmas, and/or Easter dinner table.

The nice thing about this recipe is the fact you can add more yogurt or fruit if you want. This helps to get your daily fruit in, as well as something easy to make and enjoy as a desert or used during dinner.


Please try this. I am sure you will like it.

There is a site that has several restaurant chain recipes. It is It may contain that recipe. I got my KFC cole slaw from there. KFC is the only place I know of that can make cole slaw that can come close to being as good as my grandmother's was. I think they change or rotate their recipes, so it may be in an archive or something. If that is a bust, try Also, I don't know if it'd be a clone or not, but there are two CDs at Wal-Mart called One Million Recipes (both 9.99 each) near the microwaves.


(why they are THERE is beyond me, but in two WMs, one being a super WM, that is where I found them.) Those CDs have a lot of variations and different categories, diabetic, kid friendly, no bake, picnic, for all foods, not just salads, but soups, salsas, main dishes... and on and on. Or, why not just ask Ruby Tuesdays? Nothing ventured nothing gained. The worst that can happen is they say they cannot give out the recipe.

Here's the recipe from Top Secret Recipes:

Ruby Tuesday Apple Salad

Mosey on over to the salad bar at Ruby Tuesday and you'll find this sweet, creamy apple salad somewhere down at the end. It's a simple recipe to clone with just nine ingredients, and it makes a great side for any casual cookout, picnic, reunion, or mandatory boring office party. Dried cranberries rehydrate to add notes of concentrated sweetness, and the celery and chopped pecans contribute extra crunch. You'll need two kinds of apples - one green and one red -just be sure to dice them into pieces that are about the size of almonds. Plan ahead on this one so that you can let the salad sit for several hours before you serve it. It tastes much better after a good fridge nap. This recipe yields enough for 6 servings, but it can easily be doubled or quadrupled to fill more mouths.

1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 Granny Smith small apple, diced
1 Gala or Fuji small apple, diced
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/3 cup chopped pecans (candied)
1/4 cup minced celery

1. Combine sour cream, mayonnaise, sugar, and lemon juice in a medium bowl and whisk until sugar has

2. Add remaining ingredients and stir. Store the salad in a sealed container in your refrigerator for 3 to 4 hours
before serving.

Makes 1 quart (6 servings).
