The Throwback Salad You Need to Revisit
Greens-free salads such as tuna, chicken and egg are great for make-ahead lunches, since they don't get soggy and can be made a day or two ahead of time. Here's one you may have forgotten about, though: the Waldorf. The recipe, from America: The Cookbook
, simply has you combine diced Granny Smith apples, chopped celery and grated carrot and dress them with mayonnaise, lemon juice and black pepper. Some chopped walnuts and raisins add a nice crunchy and sweet finishing touch.
