Waldorf Salad Recipe Anyone?

Thamby and I were inspired this morning, by Ciki's fabulous limerick on Sek Yuen, and that got us
dreaming of the days gone by,
when hope was high, and fun was blogging,
we dreamed of oily food that's fried,
we thought our waists would be forgiving....

But we were young and unafraid,
And creams were whipped,
and never wasted,
No free reviews, and bills were paid,
No food untouched, no wine untasted,

Argh, I am getting carried away. So anyway, inspired by the limericking, Thamby and I decided to race to see who could post a 5 verse limerick first. Harumph. She's a natural that one, how will I ever compete.

Anyway, a few weeks back, I had a small luncheon order, to cater for a group of people, and one of the items on the menu was a Waldorf Salad. I used to make this a lot, but then mayo went out of fashion, much like shoulder pads of the 80s....and people just had those new fandangled dressing that was pretty much anorexic, like olive oils and balsamic vinegars....

So here's the recipe for a good old Waldorf Salad.


For Thamby and Tim, who like their salad
I give this recipe, though its no ballad
It has lots of nuts
Which helps you to fart
And fibre for good flow for innards

First you chop up some celery
Do a bollywood dance around a tree
Half some plump grapes
Then draw the drapes
And make love like teenagers in Glee.

The apples you must cut and then cube
Meanwhile, don't forget the lube
Some walnuts you'd toast
And Tim's nuts you'd roast
Standby the mayo, jar or tube

Now if you're done with the chopping
You can now proceed with the tossing
Add to the aforementioned mayo
Some yoghurt and also some alio
Undraw the drapes, and put on the dressing

You can line the bowl with some foliage
The way the bra cups your cleavage
When tossing the stuff
Dont be so rough
Ta Dah, A Salad Hard to Upstage


For those who don't read poetry, ahem,


2 celery stalks
10 seedless grapes
2 red apples
Cup Walnut Toasted
Half Cup Almond Slivers Toasted
1 head Romaine Lettuce
3/4 cup mayo + 1/2 cup yoghurt, dash of lemon juice and tablespoon sugar

Slice the celery, dice the apple and grapes, toss together nuts and dressing
Line a bowl with lettuce leaves, and pour in rest of salad.

Hahahhaha with all those steps (dancing around the tree in bollywood fashion, draw the drapes, roast Tim's nuts), I doubt that the salad will ever get eaten! YOU DA MAN! HILARIOUS!

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

i wonder if its harder to come up with the limerick or coming up with the salad via following the limerick..where to find nuts and bra?

CUMI & CIKI said...

OH WOW! i just read LLs.. it was so cool but YOURS AHPA! takes the cake!

SHIT! so farneee!!!!!

And make love like teenagers in Glee.. ?! mwuahahaha! my fav line..

but my fav verse is this one:

You can line the bowl with some foliage
The way the bra cups your cleavage
When tossing the stuff
Dont be so rough
Ta Dah, A Salad Hard to Upstage

(second line made me think of meena - the woman alwys spilling out of her bra one :P )haahahaha

Brilliant way to present a recipe! It rocks :-))

Vintage FBB - dry, eloquent and witty. :)

I heard nuts are brain food. Combined with the fibres and reproductive benefits of celery, I think your Waldorf Salad is a champion. I should make one before I take my next exam!

Such brilliant limerick lah. Although I must say that there are no love-making scenes in Glee, I think. Can't imagine them 'doing' AND singing. Hehe.
