Mandarin Orange & Apple Salad could not be easier!
The tartness of the mandarin oranges, the sweetness of the apple, the crispness of the celery, and the crunchy walnuts along with the creaminess of the mayo and the zip from the lemon zest and lemon juice give this dish a variety of yummy tastes and textures. It’s like a party in your mouth!
Serving this dish on a bed of lettuce gives it a sort of fancy look. You could certainly serve it on individual plates on a lettuce leaf or you could serve it in a large serving bowl or individual bowls without lettuce leaves.
I have done both and it is a hit either way!
I love making this Mandarin Orange & Apple Salad ahead of time! I store the salad and dressing separately and then pour the dressing on when I serve it.
I use Kraft Mayo with Olive Oil, like this. (This is not an affiliate link, I just wanted to show what kind of mayo I use.)
