Green apple is considered to be extremely healthy; but I could hardly eat a bite of it alone. Since the phase of salad is still on, I thought of tossing up some jazzy salad with these beautiful green fruits. A quick scan through Google and this quick but delicious salad was ready just in minutes.
I loved the combination of apple and celery; plus the honey-mustard dressing has become my favorite since the time I started falling for salads. So all in all it is a win-win recipe – full of goodness as well as extremely delicious. If you didn’t like green apple till now just like me, you must give this a try and I bet you will be in love with it!
