Waldorf Salad

This recipe comes from the Lion House Cookbook:

Makes 20 servings

½ cup walnuts, coarsely chopped
3 cups diced celery
7 cups diced Fuji apples*
1 cup raisins

3 cups heavy cream
¾ cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ cup sour cream

In a large clean bowl whip the cream using an electric mixer. Gradually add the sugar as the cream whips. Just before the cream reaches the soft peak stage, add the vanilla. Continue whipping until the cream is at the soft peak stage.

Add the sour cream and whip until incorporated. Cover and place the bowl in the refrigerator until ready to toss the salad. Toss the apples, walnuts, celery, and raisins in a bowl. Mix in the whipped cream and serve immediately.
