I made Moe another salad this week – A deconstructed Waldorf Salad. You can find the original recipe on the British Larder.
I made a couple of adjustments.
I cheated, using Hellman’s Mayo as the basis for the dressing.
Doctored it up with fresh garlic, Dijon mustard, salt, pepper, fresh lemon juice and a little rice wine vinegar for a touch of sweetness.
I subbed Gorgonzola for the Oxford Blue.
And the grocery store was out of watercress so I added red cabbage for a bit of colour.
Moe loved this salad.
I think the next time I make it for him I will also add green onion or chives and I like the idea of adding dates.
Dates and Gorgonzola go beautifully together.

This looks incredible! Very creative!
What a great salad! I totally love it:)
That is, without a doubt, the most beautiful Waldorf Salad I have ever seen. It's gorgeous! Absolutely brilliant to sub the red cabbage for the watercress; I like it better your way. (I like your other suggestions too.)Thanks for sharing the eye-candy (as always!) ~m.
Beautiful. You have turned an everyday salad into something very special.
