Wednesday's Chow - Frozen Waldorf Salad

Golda’s Frozen Waldorf Salad
From Paula Deen


½ cup sugar
½ cup pineapple juice
¼ cup fresh lemon juice
1/8 tsp salt
1 1/3 cup heavy cream
½ cup miniature marshmallows
½ cup red seedless grapes, cut in half
½ cup crushed pineapple, drained
2 medium apples, diced, skin left on
½ cup diced celery
½ cup walnuts or pecans, chopped
8 fresh or maraschino cherries
8 sprigs fresh mint leaves


In a saucepan, combine the sugar, pineapple juice, lemon juice and salt. Heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thick. Remove from heat and let cool. Whip the cream and fold into the cooled syrup mixture. Stir in marshmallows, grapes, pineapple, apples, celery and nuts. Spread mixture into an 8 x 8 inch pan and freeze until frozen throughout, at least 2 hours. Remove salad from the freezer 5 minutes before stirring. Cut into 8 squares. Garnish with cherry and sprig of fresh mint.
