Waldorf salad with Stilton

usa
|
Waldorf salad was invented at the very end of the 19th century in New York’s Waldorf Hotel.  Originally it was just celery and apple, dressed well.  Over time other ingredients have been added - walnuts (or pecans), grapes, blue cheese, leaves such as watercress and sometimes chicken breast.  To be quick, you could use shop-bought mayonnaise, or plain yoghurt flavoured with mustard and lemon juice.

The Vietnamese adopted the baguette from their French colonists and put it to very good use in these delicious ‘Saigon sandwiches’.  This is the perfect way to use up leftover roast meats, especially pork, and ideally Chinese BBQ-style char siu pork.  This recipe fuses techniques from Andrea Nguyen’s book ‘Into the Vietnamese Kitchen’ with inspiration from Saigon Sandwich*, by far the best hole-in-the-wall bánh mì purveyor in all of San Francisco.
