Aug 29, 2011

Ingredients

  • Dressing
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) mayonnaise or salad dressing
  • 3 tbsp (45 mL) plain yogurt
  • 2 tbsp (25 mL) sugar
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) grated fresh lemon peel
  • Salad
  • 3 large Granny Smith apples, cut into 8 wedges, then cut crosswise into bite-size pieces (about 4 1/2 cups/1.125 L)
  • 2 large Gala apples, cut into 8 wedges, then cut crosswise into bite-size pieces (about 3 1/2 cups/875 mL)
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) fresh lemon juice
  • 6 medium stalks celery with leaves
  • 3/4 cup (175 mL) chopped walnuts, toasted

Steps

  • 1
    In small bowl, mix dressing ingredients until blended. Refrigerate until serving time.
  • 2
    Place apples in large bowl. Sprinkle with lemon juice; toss until coated.
  • 3
    Remove leaves from celery; chop leaves into 1/2-inch pieces to measure 1/2 cup. Cut celery stalks diagonally into 1/4- to 1/2-inch slices to measure 2 cups. Add to bowl with apples. Refrigerate until serving time.
  • 4
    Just before serving, toss apples and celery. Add dressing; toss until coated. Sprinkle with walnuts.

Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    How-To : To toast walnuts, sprinkle in ungreased heavy skillet. Cook over medium heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until walnuts begin to brown, then stirring constantly until light brown.
  • Tip 2
    Tip : To grate the fresh lemon peel, use a Microplane* grater (similar to an old-fashioned wood rasp). It grates the peel evenly but avoids scraping the underlying pith.
  • Tip 3
    Substitution : For added flavour, substitute flavoured yogurt, such as orange or lemon, for the plain.
