Apple and Walnut Salad

Apple and Walnut Salad

  • Author: Jamie Sanders


This crunchy Apple and Walnut Salad is tangy and sweet! It’s the perfect combination of sweet and tart apples, highlighted with a creamy, lemony dressing.  Makes a great addition to any family gatherings.




  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar (or sugar substitute)
  • 2 teaspoons grated fresh lemon peel (I did not have fresh lemons on hand and used a bit of true lemon instead.)


  • 2 large Granny Smith apples, diced into bite-size pieces
  • 2 large Pink Lady apples, (or other sweet apple), diced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 6 medium celery stalks, chopped into small pieces
  • 1 cup lettuce (torn into very small pieces)
  • 3/4 cup chopped walnuts (Someone has been eating my walnuts- no I only had a scant 1/4 cup to use.)


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Toast walnuts in a single layer in a shallow pan 6 to 8 minutes, stirring halfway through. (optional – but so yummy!)
  2. In small bowl, mix dressing ingredients until blended. Refrigerate until serving time.
  3. Place apples in large bowl. Add lemon juice and toss until coated.
  4. Add celery to bowl with apples. Refrigerate until serving time.
  5. Just before serving, toss apples and celery. Add lettuce and dressing; toss until coated. Sprinkle with walnuts.
