Waldorf Astoria Dining Room Courtesy of Wikipedia
I found this recipe in our file yesterday. I had forgotten the story behind
"WALDORF ASTORIA DRESSING.
A good friend of Peter's Aunt Phyllis, was able to dine at the Waldorf Astoria. She was so astounded by the salad dressing served that she asked for the recipe. The Waiter smiled and said "I will be happy to get it for you." When she received the bill for their dinner, there was an addition of 500.00 for the recipe.
Apparently, she could not give the recipe back as she had already read it, unaware that she would also be charged for it. So she took it home and decided that if she had paid $500.00 for the recipe, she was going to share it with everyone she knew.
And so, I am going to share our version with you. Only a minor change has been made for copyright purposes
