Apple Walnut Salad

Sharing is caring!

apple walnut salad recipe with cheese and grapes.

A beautiful, tasty apple walnut salad, served on a bed of lettuce leaves with tangy mature cheddar, celery and grapes. Every last mouthful of this salad is just delicious!

Apple Walnut Salad with tangy Cheddar cheese is one of my favourite quick salads to make. It’s a simple but super tasty combination, quick to make and great as an easy lunch for two.

The sweetness of the apples against the walnuts and tangy Cheddar is just perfect. Best of all you can have our salad ready in just 10 minutes.

It also makes a great lunch box salad recipe or as a BBQ side or for taking along to picnics or potlucks.
