Waldorf Inspired Salad




Walnuts, cucumber, braeburn apple, dried cranberries, 4 eggs, lemon juice, salt, 1 pint basil oil
1) Separate 4 egg yolks from the whites (discard the whites) and put in a large clean bowl to whisk (or use the whisk attachment on your blender if you have one). Add the lemon juice/vinegar, a pinch of salt and whisk thoroughly.
Now add the oil ONE DROP at a time until the mayonnaise is thick and glossy. You don't have to use all the oil - I like it quite thick but if it's too thick you can always add a little warm water to thin it back down again.

2) Using a potato peeler, peel fine strips of cucumber, peel and core an apple and cut into segments. Mix the cucumber and apple together with mayonnaise and add the cranberries and walnuts. Serve on a bed of lettuce.
