What are the best type of apples to use when making Charosset for Passover?
I'm torn between something more neutral like Gala vs something tart (which might work well with the sweetness of the rest of the dish).

Looking through recipes suggests a variety of apples. Gala showed up the most, with Fuji in second, and McIntosh and Delicious tied for last.
As the apple tree among the trees of the wood, so is my beloved among the sons. I sat down under his shadow with great delight, and his fruit was sweet to my taste.
So, for authenticity, go for a sweet apple, but Gala is the most mentioned apple in recipes online.
I made mine with Empire apples this year and it was absolutely delicious!
We make ours with McIntosh and it's so yummy!
