This recipe is a fresh take on a classic salad.  



  • ¼  cup  walnuts toasted*
  • ⅓  cup  2% greek yogurt
  • teaspoon  Lemon juice
  •   Kosher salt to taste
  •   Freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • cups  chopped apples
  • ¼  cup  chopped celery
  • ¼  cup  Medjool dates seeds removed and cut into thin strips
  • ¼  cup  red grapes halved



  1. If toasting in the oven (I like to use my toaster oven), preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spread out on evenly on a baking sheet. Make sure the nuts aren’t overlapping each other.
  3. Toast for 5 - 7 minutes, checking often to avoid burning.
  4. Walnuts are ready when they are slightly darker.
  5. If toasting on a stove top, place the walnuts in a small, dry pan over medium heat. Toast for 1 - 2 minutes.


  1. In a large bowl, mix together yogurt, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
  2. Add apples, celery, red grapes and dates. Mix well and serve immediately.
