    This sounds delish! I make a similar apple salad during the holidays (or a smaller version just for me anytime). Here’s that recipe-give it a try.
    2 Gala or Fuji apples cut in 1″ chunks
    2 Granny Smith apples cut in 1″ chunks
    1 pkg. of whole pitted dates, cut in 1/2
    1 C. of pecan halves (walnuts will work too)
    3 stalks of celery, sliced into half-moons
    Dressing (I don’t measure it–just enough to coat):
    Juice of 2 lemons + zest
    salt & pepper to taste
    olive oil

        Hi Susan! From Debra’s post it sounds like she is making a dressing using the juice and zest of 2 lemons, olive oil (amount not specified), and salt and pepper to taste. This sounds like a delicious and simple lemon dressing that would be perfect for summer (or anytime of year). We have a similar dressing recipe you can try, our Citrus Salad Dressing. Yum!

    Salad gets a bit sweeter if dressed salad sets refridgerated an hr. or so .. nice surprise…
    Balsamic vinegar works nicely too!
