Fuji, Gala, Honey Crisp, and McIntosh are just some of the apples awaiting visitors at High Hampton Inn’s inaugural Apple Festival on Saturday, September 24. This all day, free event will celebrate the apple with a variety of products from three local growers from the Hendersonville, NC area. Guests will be able to sample a number of tasty treats such as homemade apple cider, apple ice cream, and other apple dishes prepared by Chef Sean and the growers.
In honor of September being National Apple Month and High Hampton’s inaugural Apple Festival, Chef Sean shared a different, but tasty recipe that truly highlights this crisp fruit. This easy-to-make salad features two different types of apples and is the perfect fall side dish to share with family and friends.
Yield: 1 quart
3 red apples (cored and diced with skin on)
3 green apples (cored and diced with skin on) *Keep diced apples in water with a small amount of lemon juice until ready to mix. Make sure they are drained completely when mixing.*

¼ cup celery (diced)
2 ounces walnuts (roasted and chopped)
