Count on a bushel's worth of crunchy flavor in this walnut and apple salad, made with an easy yogurt-mayo dressing.

Ingredients

Dressing

1/2
cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
3
tablespoons plain yogurt
2
tablespoons sugar
2
teaspoons grated fresh lemon peel

Salad

2
large Granny Smith apples, cut into 8 wedges, then cut crosswise into bite-size pieces (4 1/2 cups)
2
large Gala apples, cut into 8 wedges, then cut crosswise into bite-size pieces (3 1/2 cups)
1
tablespoon fresh lemon juice
6
medium stalks celery with leaves
3/4
cup chopped walnuts, toasted*

Directions

  • 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.
Tips  

*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.

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.

For added flavor, substitute flavored yogurt, such as orange or lemon, for the plain.
