Recipe by COOKGIRl
READY IN: 20mins




  • Toast the walnuts in a dry skillet and set aside to cool.
  • Trim the celery leaves off the head, chopping enough to measure 1 cup. Set aside.
  • Thinly slice the celery stalks on the diagonal.
  • In a large salad bowl, toss the celery stalks with the romaine lettuce, spinach and onion crescents.
  • In a small, non-reactive bowl combine the lemon juice, Dijon mustard and honey. With a whisk, gradually mix in the olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Peel and core the apples. Cut into quarters, then each quarter cut into 2 wedges. Thinly slice crosswise into triangle shapes. Toss the apples with some fresh lemon juice to stop them from browning.
  • Combine the celery, celery leaves, and apples with the romaine, spinach and onions.
  • Sprinkle salad with the toasted walnuts. Add the vinaigrette and toss to coat.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste.
