  1. Chop the rosemary needles, garlic, and a generous pinch of salt finely until it becomes almost a paste. Put the paste in the bottom of a large bowl, and whisk it well with the yogurt, cider vinegar, honey, and a fresh grind of black pepper.
  2. Mix the lemon juice with two cups of water in a medium bowl.
  3. Cut the apples into a small dice and put into the lemon water to stop them browning as you cut. Drain and mix them into the dressing. Top with the celery, celery leaves, lettuce, and toasted hazelnuts. Toss to combine. Serve with grilled chicken.
