Apple-Waldorf Salad

This is a quick salad to put together and is a crunchy and tangy salad. It uses apple as the main ingredient and is a forgiving recipe. The remaining ingredients can be modified with available ingredients in the pantry and refrigerator. It uses a simple mayo dressing. Great salad to have especially on a hot day!

Ingredients
Apple - 1
Mixed lettuce
Celery - 1/4 cup chopped
Chopped almonds - 2 tablespoons

For the dressing
Low fat mayonnaise - 1 tablespoon
Lemon juice - 1 teaspoon
All spice powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Salt and pepper to taste

Directions
Chop the apples, celery and walnuts.

Whisk together the mayonnaise, lemon juice, all-spice powder, salt and pepper.

In a bowl, combine together the lettuce, apple, celery and walnuts.

Drizzle the prepared dressing on top and toss.

Serve chilled.

Other possible variations - pears, raisins, dried cherries, cranberries, pistachios, walnuts etc.
