1 cup (225g) champagne grapes
3 stalks celery, diced 1/4 inch
2 pounds (900g) Gardein or other meatless chicken-style strips (check the freezer section of your supermarket/health food shop), thawed and coarsely pulsed in a food processor or chopped by hand
3/4 cup (170g) walnuts, toasted and coarsely chopped
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Place all of the ingredients in a large bowl and toss gently to combine.
