    Nina’s Tasty Tip:

    If you would like to prepare this salad before a dinner party, add all of the ingredients to the bowl, except the apple. Julienne the apple and place in a bowl filled with lemon water. Store in the fridge till ready to serve. Dry the apple on paper towels before adding it to the salad.
