1 medium ripe apple
1 stalk celery, chopped
¼ cup mayonnaise 
Salt and pepper
2 cups lettuce, torn into bite-size pieces


Peel apple and cut into halves. Remove core and slice halves 1/4-inch thick. Reserve 4 slices. Cut remaining slices into thin strips.
In a medium bowl, mix celery, mayonnaise and apple strips; season with salt and pepper to taste. Arrange on lettuce and top with apple slices.


Later versions of the salad commonly added chopped walnuts. If you'd like, toss 1/4 cup of them in with the celery and apple.
