This famous salad was invented by the maître d'hôtel of the Waldorf-Astoria in New York in the 1890s. Like most classics there's nothing to be gained by trying to jump it up, so don't be tempted to mess with it. Serve the salad as part of a buffet, as one of several salads as a starter selection or with a good chunk of cheese.

3 crisp apples
4 sticks of celery, peeled if stringy and a few leaves of the celery
80g walnuts, lightly toasted
3-4 tbsp homemade or good quality mayonnaise

Cut the apple into four, around the core and then cut into rough 2cm chunks. Cut the celery into similar size chunks and put them into a bowl with the apple and walnuts and celery leaves. Bind with the mayonnaise and serve.
