Crispy Apple, Raisin and Walnut Salad
A delightful salad on the table in 15 minutes.
- 3 apples (Gala, Fuji, Red Delicious) cored and with the skin on, cut into long strips about 1/2 inch wide (about the size of a french fry)
- 3 teaspoons lemon juice
- 1 cup chopped celery
- ½ cup chopped walnuts
- ¼ cup raisins
- 3 teaspoons honey
- ¾ cup sour cream
- ¾ cup plain yogurt
Right after cutting the apples; to a large bowl, add the cut apples and lemon juice. Mix the apples and lemon juice together (the lemon juice should keep the apples from turning brown).
To the bowl, add chopped celery, walnuts, raisins, honey, yogurt and sour cream. Mix together until the apples are evenly coated with the sour cream and yogurt.
Do a taste test and add more honey if needed.
This salad is best when served right after it's made.
- The trick is to cut the apples right before making the salad so that they can be coated with fresh lemon juice. This way the flesh of the cut apples should keep their color rather than turning brown.
