  1. Use a chef's knife to slice cabbage into thin pieces 1 to 2 inches long. Do not use the large ribs of the cabbage, as they are too strongly flavored.
  2. In a large bowl, toss together the cabbage, apples, walnuts, celery, mayonnaise, sugar and salt until evenly coated. Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator for up to one day.

Very easy salad to make and delicious. Didn't have walnuts so used chopped almonds. My husband is picky on salads and loved this, great summer salad!

We really liked this salad. It will be a keeper.
