If you have recently harvested fresh gala apples from your yard or local orchard, you can use the apples to make several sweet recipes. For a healthy lunch or appetizer you can use your gala apples to make a simple apple and cashew salad. The saltiness of the cashews complements the sweetness of the gala apples, giving you a memorable small meal. Typical apple cashew recipes include the addition of celery instead of lettuce to create a traditional salad.
Add 1/2 cup of powdered sugar and 1/2 cup of mayonnaise to a medium-sized bowl.
Stir the powdered sugar and mayonnaise with a spoon until the mixture is blended well and smooth.
Chop two gala apples and three celery stalks into small bite-sized pieces.
Add chopped gala apples, celery and 1-1/2 cup of cashews to a large bowl. Add the powdered sugar and mayonnaise mixture to the large bowl as well.
Toss the salad with salad tongs until all of the ingredients are well blended. Serve the salad immediately.
