  • 6 Tbsp mayonnaise or plain yogurt
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 Tbsp lemon zest
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Pinch of freshly ground black pepper


  • 2 apples cored and chopped into cubes (Sweet apples like Fuji or Honeycrisp recommended)
  • 1 cup green seedless grapes quartered
  • 1 cup celery thinly sliced
  • 1 cup walnuts chopped
  • 6 leaves butter lettuce for serving


  • In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise (or yogurt), honey, lemon zest and juice, salt and pepper.
  • In a large bowl, combine apple, celery, grapes, and walnuts.
  • Pour dressing over salad and gently toss to combine.
  • Serve on a bed of fresh butter lettuce.


  • The best apples are crisp, sweet, juicy apples like a Fuji, Jonagold, or Honeycrisp. I prefer to leave the skin on for extra color and flavor.
  • Plain greek yogurt can be used in place of the mayonnaise, however you may need to add more honey to compensate for the tartness.
