So, give this a try, it’s sure to be a crowd pleaser!
My wife and I were at a neighborhood party a couple weeks ago and this pie was brought by one of the party guests. I thought it was so awesome, my wife, (always thinking), got the recipe and made for me a couple weeks later for my birthday.
Mmmmm mmmm! I just had to pass this recipe along to my readers.
This is a guest post from Louise at PaleoMagazine.com, and I think you’ll love this recipe. Louise also just released her new cookbook, which comes with some amazing recipes and a bunch of awesome bonuses – check it out!
When we were still living and working in NYC, my husband and I started throwing a lot of dinner parties. It was amazingly fun.
And here’s the best part…
We had the chance to show a lot of people that eating Paleo is not only healthy and nutritious, but also yummy and awesome! I generally try to re-create one or two foods that I think they probably love already in a non-Paleo form.
And really, what’s more traditional and delicious than Apple Pie?
Did you know that Apple Pies originally had no sugar, and the pastry portion wasn’t meant to be eaten? Also, apples aren’t originally native to North America, despite the fact that apple pie is supposedly so “American.”
You can make these tartlets any time of year, but in the US, this type of dessert is most popular around the fall and winter holidays.
We guarantee that if you make these and take them to the office or to a party, nobody will complain about them being Paleo (they likely won’t even notice).
About Louise Hendon
This salad got its name from the famous Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York. Created in 1896 by the maître d’hôtel Oscar Tschirky, the Waldorf salad was an instant success. The salad became popular enough that Cole Porter featured it in his 1934 song “You’re the Top“.
Since then, this salad recipe has experienced many additions and subtractions. Most changes it seems are caused by the typical and favorite foods of a particular region. In the case of this recipe, the regional influence is the southwestern part of the United States. Namely Texas and Louisiana.
I was so excited when my sister and family came over a week ago for a cookout, and my sister not only made and brought my Mom’s Waldorf salad recipe, but she brought me my Mom’s entire hand written recipe book. There are some real gems, and blasts from my past in that recipe book that I’ll be sharing down the road on this website!
So try this one out, a true southern rendition of the “Waldorf Salad”. A definite comfort food of mine, and a very happy trip down memory lane every time I eat it!
