  • 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

  • *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.
