5 Walnut Apple Salad for #WeekdaySupper

I hope that everyone had an enjoyable Christmas, and a Happy New Year's coming up. Here's a quick and easy salad I made my family for Christmas, one night with roasted walnuts the other with almonds and both nights there was no salad left over. It's a great salad that goes well with any main dish, and I've had it several times as my main course with dinner (sometimes with chicken sprinkled in). I hope you enjoy, and be sure to check out the rest of our Weekday Supper recipes this week:
