The Waldorf Salad was first created between 1893 and 1896 by Oscar Tschirky, the New York Waldorf Hotel’s maître d’hôtel. His original recipe was made using only apples, celery, and mayonnaise. Walnuts were added by the time the recipe was first published in a cookbook in 1928 and then grapes were added to the recipe later.
