      1/2   c            Dried currants
    1       lg           Head celery
    2                    Golden Delicious apples
    6                    Pale green celery leaves
    4                    Parsley sprigs
   10                    Walnuts -- cracked
                         -left in large pieces
    2       tb           Walnut oil
                         Lemon juice
                         -ÿÿChampagne vinegar
                         Freshly ground pepper
   IF THE CURRANTS ARE HARD, cover them with warm water and set them aside to
   soften while you cut the celery and apples. When they're soft, after 10
   minutes or so, drain them and squeeze out the water. Separate the stalks of
   celery and peel the tougher outer stalks. Slice the celery into thin
   pieces, straight across or at an angle. Cut the apples into quarters or
   sixths if they're large and thinly slice them crosswise. Finely chop the
   celery leaves and the parsley and crack the nuts. Combine the celery,
   apples, currants, celery leaves, parsley and walnuts in a bowl. Toss them
   with just enough walnut oil to coat everything lightly. Add the lemon juice
   or vinegar to taste, salt lightly, season with pepper and toss again.
