Oak Leaf Lettuce & Apple Salad

with Celery & Thyme

Crispy apple & celery slices, red + green oak leaf lettuces and thyme sprigs—a fresh & simple autumnal salad.

 

I like to serve this with my lemony dijon mustard salad dressing as it adds a little warmth to aid digestion.  It tastes great sprinkled with Immune Supportive Seed Snack or toasted nuts, shaved hard cheeses or crumbled soft cheeses.
