Try This Super Easy Sweet and Tart Healthy Side Dish You Can Serve or Snack On

Do you need a dish to take to a potluck or cookout? Here's a healthy option to try that is sure to be a crowd pleaser. Pair this salad with grilled pork, chicken or fish or eat a bit for a snack in the afternoon.

I needed a quick snack one day and thought of this side dish from what I had on-hand in the refrigerator and pantry. Dried cranberries and walnuts are ideal for salads and for your breakfast oatmeal.

This salad is refreshing with the sweet flavors of the apple and dried cranberry that complements the crisp taste of the celery. I use a tasty make-ahead all-purpose homemade creamy Poppy Seed Dressing, which is also perfect for coleslaw.

15-Minute Side Dish: Apple-Cranberry and Walnut Salad

  • 2 green apples, peeled, cored, and chopped
  • 2 stalks celery chopped
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 2 green onions sliced
  • 1/4 cup toasted walnuts
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients together. If you're making this dish ahead, sprinkle apples with lemon juice to prevent from turning brown. Add walnuts and dressing just before serving.
