My mom used to make this salad when I was growing up. I have seen it in cafeterias, but it is usually just carrots and raisins. This is how it is supposed to be. I prefer Gala apples because they have a crisp sweetness that is slightly tart, but you can use whatever your favorite apple is. It is a nutritious way to satisfy your sweet tooth as a snack, or to serve as a refreshing salad to go with a meal.
Carrot and Apple Salad
3 unpeeled apples, cut into chunks
