  1. Combine the dressing ingredients in a small bowl or jar. Mix well and refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the grapes, celery and apples. Add the dressing and toss.
  3. To serve, arrange a few Boston lettuce leaves or a handful of mixed greens on a dinner plate.
  4. Top with some of the apple mixture, then sprinkle on some toasted walnut halves.
