I didn't have any celery on hand so I omitted it from my version. Also, since I am on a low carb diet, I exchanged the farro for salad greens.

Salads have re-entered my life in a big way.

This Chicken, Apple, Walnut and Cheddar Salad is packed with nutrition, is crunchy and delicious.  Perfect for the hot summer months.Even the hubby is loving them.  We have a local restaurant called Lettuce, and lucky for me, the hubby likes it too.  They make fantastic salads with a seasonal, fresh and local ingredients. You can also get sandwiches and specialty hot entree’s that change daily.

When I was contacted by California Walnuts and was asked if I would like to participate in their Virtual Salad Party I jumped at the chance..  I love walnuts.  They are a healthy protein and totally fits into my Low-Carb eating plan.

All participants chose which salad they wanted to create from several different chefs.

So let’s get the party rolling.
