This is a pretty spectacular salad, surprising given how few ingredients there are. I added Parmesan crisps for fun; but even without it I would give it 5 stars. I also used lime juice, which gave everything a sweet and fragrant freshness. I love how this makes it easy to make use of celery, which is so cheap, healthy and filling.
Great salad, no awesome salad! Have a ton of Apples that were given to me, and since I hate to throw out produce and need to find a recipe where I cloud use those apples. And lo and behold I found this recipe and I was excited that I Had all the ingredients at home. This salad is great for the summer or with any Mediterranean food entrée. Enjoy
Quick, healthy, easy, tasty and cheap. My favorite things :) Great recipe as is. If you want to change it up try using lime juice and cilantro instead of the lemon and parsley. I'll definitely be making this on a regular basis.
The flavors in this salad recipe are perfect and excellent as is. I would not add or change anything. I think adding nuts would turn the flavor into something too familiar and dull the zestiness of parsley-celery-apple combination. As many have stated in their reviews, this is a refreshing salad. I would double this recipe to bring for potluck. It kept well for next day. We wished we had more!
This is sooooo good! We had a fresh head of red cabbage from our neighbor’s garden so we added that and used fresh basil from our garden instead of parsley. Even with those additions, it required very little tweaking of olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. It was even better the next day . . . and the next day!
This salad was very refreshing - great for a summer night. Would also be good for a luncheon. The one thing I might change next time is to do 1 1/2 tablespoons of lemon juice instead of 2, it had a little bit too much bite, but that didn't diminish the enjoyment of it at all. We really liked it a lot!
