Preparation – 5 minutes

Peel and core the sweet red apples. You can leave the skin on if you prefer. Cut the apples into small chunks and sprinkle with the freshly squeezed lemon juice. Remove tough strings from the celery and cut into parts like half circles.

Rinse and clean the lettuce, make sure you rid it of all the sand. Slice into smaller parts to make it easier to eat. For this recipe, we have used nice fresh romaine lettuce.
