I experiment and add whatever fruit, nuts and vegetables taste good with this. The original recipe from Woman's Home Companion Cookbook. 1946.

  1. Core apples, pare if desired or leave red skinned apples unpeeled; dice and sprinkle with lemon juice. Combine with celery and mayonnaise to moisten.
  2. Pile in lettuce cups or on other salad greens on individual plates.
  3. Just before serving sprinkle with nuts.
  4. Note: a little grated orange rind may be mixed with the salad or sprinkled over the nuts.

Sometimes less is more. This recipe is delicious and simple. Very tasty. I used pecans, and increased the celery a bit.
