Staff Holiday Recipes - Waldorf Salad

Katie Heaton is the Fairmont City Branch Manager and has been with the library since 1997. Katie's Waldorf Salad recipe is sure to be a holiday favorite. Katie poetically states that "after the fall harvest of those beautiful red apples & meaty walnuts - nothing taste better next to that holiday ham!"
