5 crisp, tart apples cut into bite-sized chunks (a mixed variety, or all the same is good)
juice of 1 lemon
3-4 stalks celery cut into bite-sized pieces
3/4 cup walnut pieces (or pecans, hazelnuts...)
1/2 cup raisins
1/4 cup dried cranberries
3 scoops/to taste of a binding ingredient (nayo, soy yogurt...)
Cut apples, place in large bowl, squeeze lemon over all pieces. Mix to thoroughly coat. (Keeps apples from going brown).
Add celery, nuts, dried fruits. These are all to taste. Mix well.
Add binding ingredient, again to taste. Mix well.
Refrigerate. Best after being in a nice cold frige for a few hours. Eat. Yum!
My mom often served this with a holiday meal. Also nice for pot-luck, lunch, brunch. Very versatile. Also something the kids can help with.
