Honey Apple Salad

It's apple season in Missouri! Orchards all over are offering the freshest apples on the farm and at the farmers' market. Check out a local orchard in your area.

Here is a simple recipe for a Honey Apple Salad that is perfect alongside bbq! It's one of my mother's favorites and it brings lots of childhood memories back for me.

Honey Apple Salad
from my mother's kitchen
3 1/2 diced red apples
2 T. lemon juice
2 c. grapes
1 c. sliced celery, thin
1/2 c. chopped dates
1/2 c. mayo
1/4 c. honey
2 T. sour cream
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 c. chopped walnuts

In a large bowl toss apples with lemon juice. Add grapes, celery and dates.

In a small bowl combine mayo, honey, sour cream and salt, mix.

Pour over apple mixture and toss; stir in walnuts.
