  • 3 apples such as Granny Smith, peeled, cored, and cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 6 celery ribs sliced thinly
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 1 cup red seedless grapes halved
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dill
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise


  • In a small skillet toast your walnuts on medium-low heat for 7-10 minutes until golden brown and fragrant. Set aside to cool, about 5 minutes, and coarsely chop.
  • In a large bowl toss together apples, celery, walnuts, grapes, and dill. Sprinkle lemon juice, salt, and pepper. (I like 1/4 teaspoon salt and a pinch pepper) Stir in the mayonnaise and season to taste.
  • Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving.
