This crunchy celery apple salad with walnuts, dates and a maple shallot vinaigrette is a quick, healthy and delicious side dish for transitioning into fall – when it’s still hot but you want all the apple flavors! (gluten-free, vegan)




  1. Add all dressing ingredients to a jar (I usually omit the thyme for this salad). Whisk or shake to combine.
  2. To toast the walnuts, place on a baking sheet and toast in the oven at 375°F for 10 minutes. Alternately, you can place them in a skillet on the stove and toast over medium heat until fragrant, stirring occasionally.
  3. In a large bowl, combine sliced celery, celery leaves, apple slices, green onions, dates, and walnuts.
  4. Pour in the dressing to taste (I start with half) and toss to coat.
  5. Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator up to 2 hours before serving.
