Tips & Notes
Crisp, sweet apple varieties work best in salads – try Jonagold, Jonathan, Gala, Fuji, Honeycrisp or Braeburn. Toasting pecans enhances their natural flavors.
- To toast pecans, place chopped nuts in a single layer on a large-rimmed baking sheet. Place on middle rack in a 350° oven for 10-15 minutes, stirring once during cooking time.
- Meanwhile, in a large bowl toss chopped apples with lemon zest and juice. Stir in cherries, celery and red onion.
- Lightly mix in mayonnaise.
- If serving immediately, stir in toasted pecans. Otherwise, refrigerate and stir in pecans right before serving.
