Salads

Apple Salad
(My version of Waldorf, I suppose..)

2 large apples (red/yellow apples or 1 red and 1 yellow)
lemon juice
salt and pepper
celery, diced
raisins, white or purple
walnuts, broken
sour cream
mayonnaise

Do not pare apples. Core and dice. Place in large mixing bowl and squeeze lemon juice all over, coating well.
Pour off excess juice. Salt and pepper to taste. Toss in diced celery, raisins and walnut pieces in amounts to taste,
mixing well after each addition. For 2 apples, I usually use about a handful of each. In separate bowl,
mix equal amounts of sour cream and mayo. Toss into salad, coating well. Cover and refrigerate.
Will keep for two or three days.

(This is easy and can be made at the last minute or the day before. For larger amounts, add an apple or two
and other ingredients to match.)

1 - 12 oz. carton cottage cheese
1 can Eagle Brand milk

1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 #2 can crushed pineapple, drain liquid in cup, reserve

with the water.) Let cool.

Cranberry Congealed Salad

l large strawberry Jello
1 large cranberry Jello
1 large red apple
1 medium naval orange
1 lb. can crushed pineapple
1 can whole cranberry sauce

(If I have cranberry juice on hand, I use that instead of water in Jello preparation.
Also, I never use quite as much liquid as the Jello directions call for.)
Quarter and core the apple but do not peel. Quarter and cut orange into smaller pieces,
leaving the peeling.
Blend orange until peeling is shredded into very small pieces (just flecks of peeling).
Then add apple and blend.
Mix pineapple and cranberry sauce.
Add everything to the Jello which has been prepared.
Place in molds or shallow dish for refrigerator setting process. Allow overnight set before using.
