Apple and Celery Salad with Peanuts

What a delightful surprise!!  Ben sent me a link about a week ago - it was a cute little article from about the "food horoscope" for the year.  It gave 12 recipes to try out for the 12 months of this year - healthy, yummy-looking recipes.  Last week, I tried a salad from the list; it was a bust for us.  So I was nervous about this salad.  But it was FANTASTIC!  And the lemon juice/olive oil dressing keeps the apples from browning, so you can have it a second night!!  I seriously could not get enough of this salad.

Apple and Celery Salad with Peanuts


2 Tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp mustard
1/4 cup olive oil
3 red apples, cut in bite-sized pieces
2 green apples, cut in bite-sized pieces
4 celery ribs, cut into 1/4-inch-thick julienne
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/3 cup peanuts, coarsely chopped


Whisk together the lemon juice, mustard, and olive oil.  Put the other ingredients in a large bowl.  Pour the lemon juice dressing on top and toss well.
