Waldorf Salad

We like this classic salad because it combines Aaron's two favorite flavors: apples and cinnamon.  Delicious and fresh any time of year, we especially love it in the fall when apples are at their peak.

6 Cups diced apples
1 Cup chopped celery
1 Cup chopped pecans or walnuts
1 Cup mayonnaise
6 Tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 Cup heavy whipping cream

In a large bowl, combine apples, celery, and nuts.  In a small bowl, whisk mayonnaise, sugar, lemon juice, and cinnamon until well combined.  Whip cream with an electric mixer until soft peaks form; fold into mayonnaise mixture to form a creamy dressing.  Pour dressing over apple mixture and stir until well coated.  Chill at least 1 hour before serving. 

12 servings.
