Waldorf salad with chicken is a classic American salad with apple, celery, mayonnaise, lemon, and walnuts. I added some chicken to make it perfect for lunch.
The Waldorf salad first appeared in 1896 when the maitre d'hotel of the famous Waldorf-Astoria hotel in New York, Oscar Tschirky, created this salad for a charity ball. It soon became a great success and was featured in Oscar's cookbook 'The cook book'.
