Okay, maybe the name needs work.
Waldorf Salad is apples, celery, onions, and walnuts with a mayo or yogurt dressing. It comes together quickly and can be adapted to your pleasure. (Say that last part in a sultry voice, will ya? Thanks.)
1 apple, diced (go for something tart, like Granny Smith)
1/2 plum, diced
1/8 red onion, minced (about 1/8 c)
3/4 c chopped romaine lettuce
1/4 c pecans, toasted and chopped
4 T mayo or plain yogurt
dash curry powder
Mix all together. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed. If you like a little extra acid, squeeze some lemon over. If you have time, let the salad sit for a while, if not to marry the flavors, at least to let them speed-date.
When you're making a nice little salad like this for yourself, the size that you cut the food into is up to you -- just think about how you like things to feel in your mouth -- really big chunks or smaller pieces that glom together and give you all the flavors in each bite? Then wield your knife accordingly.
Since this is an autumnal salad, here are some photos from my fall.

I know it's late, but Happy Fall! And (also late) Happy Thanksgiving to the Canadians!
