This salad is not only easy to make, with ingredients that I typically have on hand, but unlike some salad’s this one is super kid-friendly too.

Instructions

To make the dressing: Put all the dressing ingredients in a mason jar or similar sized wide mouth jar and use an immersion blender to blend to a creamy consistency.

To assemble the salad: In a large bowl toss the spiralized apples with 4 tablespoons of the poppy seed dressing, completely coating the apple noodles. Set aside

Arrange the lettuce leaves on a platter and top with the dressed, spiralized apples. Sprinkle the walnuts, celery, and celery leaves over the top. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle on bee pollen if using.
