Boxing Day Salad

This is a good salad to use up the fruit and nuts left over from Christmas.


  • 2 red apples, chopped
  • 2 green apples, chopped
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 6 tangerines, peeled and segmented
  • 4oz dates, chopped
  • 4oz walnuts, chopped
  • 4 sticks celery, chopped
  • Salt and pepper
  • 4 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 4 tablespoons natural yoghurt


  1. Squeeze lemon juice into a large bowl and add chopped apples. Mix well to prevent apples going brown.
  2. Add tangerines,dates and celery.
  3. Mix together mayonnaise, natural yoghurt and seasoning. Fold through the fruit mixture making sure all the fruit is coated.
  4. Cover with cling-film and chill until ready to serve.
  5. Add nuts to salad prior to serving as if they are added too soon they will soften.
