Walnut-Apple Celery Salad w/ Mustard Vinaigrette
This is a raw variation I have been playing with from a recipe I found in Fitness Magazine. I especially like the contrast of the sweet or tart apples with the zing of the dressing. Adjust dressing measurements or ingredients to taste.
I will try to post a photo soon.
