Sweet and Snappy Salad

Sweet and Snappy Salad

Who says you can’t make a salad without lettuce?  Celery, Granny Smith apples and red grapes get equal play in this flavorful dish, tossed in a sophisticated Dijon vinaigrette.  A great accompaniment to sandwiches, even toddlers can take part in creating the salad.  This recipe comes to us from our friends at Veggiecation, a culinary-nutrition education program that introduces children to the wonderfully delicious and nutritious world of vegetables.
