  • If you plan on serving carrot apple salad as a side dish, coarsely grate the carrots. The result will be similar to coleslaw. For a sandwich filling, use a fine grater so that it is not as chunky.
  • I usually don’t bother peeling the apple in this salad. The skin is a great source of fiber and adds to the overall texture.
