How 'Bout Them Apples (Salad)?

Apples are one of my favorite snacks. They are so tasty and healthy so I love learning how to use them in different ways other than just slicing them. So here is one of my go-to apple snacks. It is really simple, not many ingredients, and perfect for summer too!

Apple Salad
2 apples either red or green (I prefer one of each)
juice of 1/2 a lemon
handful or two of coarsely chopped walnuts
handful of feta cheese

Chop the apples into matchstick slices. Throw them into a large bowl. Add walnuts, feta, and lemon juice. If you feel like having more lemon juice, like I often do, then go for it. See! That simple!

Not the best pictures but it tastes great!

This would be a great idea to take to a pot luck this summer. Soon I might try adding shredded carrots to see how that is. If you don't have walnuts then almonds should do fine. Also if you don't have lemon juice you can add lime juice but just go easy on it and add a little at a time, tasting as you go.
