CLEVELAND, Oh -- Looking for a fresh and different salad to kick up a meal? Chef Tim McCoy has created a Shaved Apple & Celery Salad with Maple-Mustard Vinaigrette that is perfect anytime of the year.

Tim is a culinary instructor at the Loretta Paganini School of Cooking in Chesterland and teaches a variety of classes. You can click here to see his upcoming class schedule. Tim actually gave Fox 8's Kristi Capel a cooking lesson last year when she visited the school and he's anxious to see if Kristi remembers some of the techniques he taught her.
