Apple and Celery Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette

This is a lovely and lightly refreshing salad.  The lemon in the dressing works well to keep the apples from browning, so I make sure to whisk the dressing before chopping the apples so I have it at the ready.

1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp dried organic basil
1 tsp Dijon mustard
2 tsp dried organic parsley
2 tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 C peeled and chopped apples, about 1/4" pieces
2 C thinly (as thin as your patience) sliced celery

Preparation:Whisk or blend together all ingredients except for celery and apple.  Set aside.  Peel and chop apples and toss in salad bowl with the dressing.  Slice celery and add to bowl.  Toss well and serve.  I served mine with a cucumber and kiwi garnish which was pretty  - tasty, too.
