This simple salad has become victim of too many ingredients, including sugar, whipped cream, grapes, dates, raisins, and so on. Well-flavored ripe apples do not need to be sweetened. Use Red Delicious, Winesap, or any other eating apple.
- 3 cups apples, unpeeled or peeled, cored, julienned
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 cup celery, julienned
- ½ cup walnuts, chopped
- ¼ cup mayonnaise
- Lettuce leaves, for garnish
- Combine the apples and lemon juice; make certain the apples are well coated so they will not turn dark.
- Add the celery and walnuts.
