My husband loves this salad!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degree F. Spread the nuts on a baking sheet and toast in the oven for 8 to 10 minutes. Cool and break the nuts up into small pieces.
  2. Half, core, and cut the apples into 3/4-inch pieces, leaving the skin intact.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix the apples with the lemon juice, celery and walnuts.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, chives, sour cream, parsley, sugar, and lemon zest and season with pepper.
  5. Add the mayonnaise mixture to the apple mixture and stir to coat. Refrigerate if not using immediately.
  6. Serve and enjoy!

This was super good. The lemon zest gives it a wonderful, lemony flavor. I used the zest of a whole lemon and it was made a day ahead so I think that made the lemon just "sing" in the salad! Definitely a keeper!!

We do love these kinds of salads, & usually I try to follow the recipes right on down! However, when I got to the end of your ingredient list, & just had to satisfy the urge to include half a cup of dark raisins, so . . .. Thanks for sharing the original of the recipe!
