This is a recipe that I've been using (with adaptations) since my early 20s (that's 40 some years). So easy to make and not one of those things that everyone else brings to a pot luck. I brought it to the Thanksgiving dinner at the home of friends today and it was a hit.

Waldorf Salad

2 apples, peeled, cored, chopped.
1/2 to 1 cup of finely chopped/diced celery
1 cup of red or green grapes sliced or cut in half
1/2 cup of lightly toasted chopped walnuts. (Not really necessary to toast them, but it does get rid of more of the 'husks.')

1/2 cup mayonnaise (I use Hellman's Real, not lite, not salad dressing.)
2 to 3 Tablespoons of apple juice (Can substitute frozen concentrate or can substitute lemon juice, but I prefer the apple juice. I've even read recipes that use orange juice.)
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 heaping Tablespoon white sugar
A few dashes of Nutmeg (less than 1/8 teaspoon) (Can substitute cinnamon or Allspice)

I mix the dressing first then put the apples in it as I'm chopping them so they don't turn brown. That way I don't have to put them in lemon water.

Mix it all together, chill, and serve. For a small gathering or "tea" you could serve on lettuce leaves. I've read recipes that add fresh baby spinach leaves to the salad.
