  • 3 cups apples, chopped, about 3-4 medium apples (I used Honey Crisp apples)
  • 1 cup celery, chopped
  • 1/2 cup pecans, chopped (walnuts or almonds can be substituted)
  • 1/4 cup dried cherries or raisins
  • 1/4 cup vanilla Greek yogurt (I prefer my salad dressed lightly, but you can add more if you prefer it with more)
  • zest of a medium lemon
  • 2 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  1. In a large bowl toss apples, celery, pecans, and cherries together. Set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, mix yogurt with lemon zest, lemon juice, sugar, honey, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
  3. Pour dressing over the fruit mixture, and stir until coated.
  4. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  5. Enjoy!
