  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice fresh-squeezed
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons Sweetener of your choice
  • 6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 6 stalks celery large stalks with leaves
  • 2 each apples large Granny Smith salt to taste
  • ½ cup walnuts toasted then chopped
  • cranberries optional reduced sugar dried


  • Whisk together the fresh lemon juice, Dijon Mustard, Agave Nectar or sweetener, and olive oil and set dressing aside.
  • Working with one apple at a time, cut apple into fourths, peel and cut away seeds, cut each fourth into half crosswise, then cut each piece into thin wedges.
  • Toss cut apples with a small amount of dressing as soon as they are cut so apples won’t turn brown.
  • Toast walnuts in a dry pan over high heat for about 2 minutes, or until they start to smell toasty. (The toasted walnuts will smell a bit like popcorn.)
  • Wash celery stalks and dry with paper towels, making sure both stalks and leaves are very dry.
  • Cut leaves away from stalks and chop to make 1/2 cup chopped celery leaves.
  • Slice stalks into thin slices, enough to make 2-3 cups sliced celery.
  • Combine sliced celery, chopped celery leaves, and apple/dressing mixture and stir to combine.
  • Add enough more dressing so celery and apples are well moistened, but not overly wet. (You may not need all the dressing.)
  • Season salad with salt to taste.
  • Coarsely chop walnuts, then mix walnuts and dried cranberries (if using) into salad and serve.
