We have been eating lots of salad. This is still a classic... originally made in the 1800's in NYC at the Waldorf Hotel. Nice old-world feel about serving this. Lots of flavours.
For the salad, I tear up 1 butter lettuce, 1 small to medium green apple chopped (leave the skin on), 1 stick of chopped celery, 3-4 tablespoons of walnuts, a handful of green grapes
For the dressing, I use 3 tablespoons of Greek yoghurt, 3 tablespoons of mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, 1 teaspoons of salt, a good grinding of black pepper
Plate up the lettuce. Toss the apple and celery in the dressing to coat and pile over lettuce. Spread the walnuts and grapes about and spoon a little more dressing over if necessary. Crunchy and delicious - perfect in the summer.
