If you are still looking for a good dish to make for Thanksgiving that is easy and everyone will go Ga-Ga over, this salad is it! It's super easy and very very good!
Autumn Apple and Walnut Salad
2 Granny Smith apples - chilled
2 Red Delicious apples - chilled
1/2 C sherry vinegar, or more if needed
1 C chopped celery
3 scallions (green onions), cleaned and cut diagonally into 1/2 inch pieces. (lets be honest, shall we? I totally cheat here, and just cut those babies up.)
1/2 C shelled walnut halves
4-5 tablespoons of walnut oil
Wash and dry apples. Core and chop, but do not peel. Toss in the bowl with the sherry vinegar. Add celery, scallions and walnut halves, and drizzle with 4 Tbsp of the walnut oil. Toss again. Taste and correct seasoning-- adding more vinegar and up to 1 more Tbsp more oil as necessary, and serve immediately.
*as a side note, this is really good served with spinach!*
yield: 4-6 servings
