Waldorfsalat

Waldorf salad was invented around 1893 – 1896 at the Hotel Waldorf in Manhattan NY. Danes have since then taken this wonderful salad to heart. It’s enjoyed mostly during the fall and winter months and in some families it may also be found on the Christmas table. There are of course many variations of this salad. It can be made with mayonnaise or yogurt and in Denmark some may also add a little whipped cream to the dressing. It can be served as an appetizer or as a side dish to game. This recipe comes from my sister Jonna who makes a “knaldgod” or fabulous Waldorf salad. Enjoy!

Waldorf Salad

Ingredients: 

2 1/2 deciliter Creme Fraiche (212 g or 7.5 oz)

1 1/2 tablespoon sugar

1/4 teaspoon salt

juice from a small 1/2 lemon

3 celery stalks

400 gram grapes (14 oz)

100 gram walnuts (5.3 oz)

2 apples (I use Honeycrisp apples)

Directions:

Combine Creme Fraiche, sugar, salt and lemon juice, set aside. Clean and cut celery into small pieces. Cut grapes into halves. Chop walnuts into small pieces. Leaving the peel on the apples, dice them into bite size pieces. Add celery, grapes, walnuts and apples to Creme Fraiche. Store in refrigerator until ready to serve. Serve on a bed of Boston lettuce or decorate with celery leaves, top with walnuts. Enjoy!

Danish Gulerodsalat

Danish Gulerodsalat

Danish Gulerodsalat (Carrot Salad) is very popular in Denmark and it’s so easy to make, it only has four ingredients. It’s a refreshing, crunchy, sweet and sour….and as an added bonus, guess what, it’s good for you. If you’re not keen on lemon you can use an orange instead, but I like the little bite that lemon gives you. Enjoy this as a side dish, for lunch or as a snack. Serve cold.

Gulerodsalat (Carrot Salad)

Ingredients:

5 carrots

1 lemon

1 to 2 tsp sugar

1/4 to 1/2 cup raisins

Directions:

Peel and grate carrots using a box grater or food processor. Place in a small bowl and add the juice of 1 medium lemon. Add sugar to taste. Start with 1 tsp sugar and add more if you prefer the salad a little sweeter. Finally add the raisins, I used Golden raisins but regular raisins would actually add a little more contrast against the orange carrot color. Place in refrigerator to chill for at least 1/2 hour.
