Ingredients3 celery ribs (chopped fine)
2 Red Delicious apples (peeled and chopped into small pieces)
1 Golden Delicious apple (peeled and chopped into small pieces)
1 pear (peeled and chopped into small pieces)
1 lemon (juice from)
1 orange (juice from)
1/4 cup medjool dates (chopped into small pieces)
1/2 cup raw pecans (chopped into small pieces)
Place chopped apples and pear in bowl and pour lemon and orange juice over fruit to keep it from turning brown. Stir to coat all, and allow to marinate for 10 minutes. Drain, saving juice.
While the fruit is soaking, chop dates. Add the chopped dates, along with the celery and half of the chopped pecans to the drained fruit.
Make dressing by combining the other half of the pecans in a food processor with the reserved orange and lemon juice and puree into a nut butter sauce. Add puree to the salad and stir to blend flavors. Serve on a bed of deep green lettuce. ENJOY!
