  1. Makes 2 yields.
  2. This salad is eaten as a sweet snack or a dessert.
  3. If you want to add a new dimension to the salad, drizzle it with a little honey on the surface.
  4. I used a hand grater box to grate the apples and carrots. Be patient, hand grating requires a bit of time and physical activity.
