When you crave salad, what do you usually get? Most of the time, you’d probably get Caesar salad, Greek salad, Cobb salad, or a Leafy green salad.

But did you know there are so many other salads that you can try?

What we love about salads is that they are healthy, and you can create different variants with the ingredients you have at home.

The sky’s the limit.

We know carrots for their rich sources of vitamins and minerals. They have vitamin C, vitamin K, and beta-carotene, which are good for your vision and eye health.

Apples aren’t just juicy and crispy.

They are also rich in fiber and antioxidants. As they say, an apple a day keeps the doctor away.

Now, healthy food doesn’t have to taste plain. That’s why you should make this delicious carrot, cabbage, and apple salad.

Tips from the uploader:

  • You can use two small carrots if you don’t have a large one.
  • You could use a green apple. She used red for the contrast of colors.
  • You can choose to peel the apple skin or leave it just like she did.
  • Squeeze the lemon but make sure to remove all the seeds.
  • In some versions of the recipe, you can skip adding green onions.
