The first time I ever heard of Waldorf salad was late one night while watching Fawlty Towers with my dad. My dad and I love a good laugh and he introduced me to the hilarious comedy starring John Cleese. We would fill up big bowls with popcorn and laugh the night away. The rest of the family didn’t find the slap-stick quite as funny as us, but I enjoyed it because it was “our thing.”
Waldorf salad is a simple combination created at the Waldorf Hotel in New York. I enjoyed chopping up all the ingredients and decided to add a handful of blueberries for extra color and a bit of a sour bite. I’ve been waiting for the show to be available on iTunes. When that day comes, you can bet I’ll have a Fawlty Towers marathon with a big bowl of this salad. If I’m lucky, my dad will join me.
