This apple salad recipe is sure to detox with a touch of sweetness, tang, and cleansing celery to help one feel refreshed and energized.
Chopping The Apple Salad Pieces…
If you don’t have a food processor to make the apple salad recipe, you can mince or chop the celery into tiny pieces. Smaller pieces if preferred as this will allow the apples and celery to mix and take on flavors thoroughly. If the pieces are too large, you might end up eating chunks of celery, then separate chunks of apple and everything may not taste as infused. Since celery tastes bitter to some people, the apple and vinegar is perfect for modifying and adding to the flavor of the celery.
I particularly liked the sherry vinegar the best in this apple salad as I tried several other types of vinegar (champagne, white, etc.), and did not feel that the others produced the exact amount of tang I was looking for. Feel free to explore, however.
How Is This Apple Salad Detoxifying?
This salad contains the following ingredients along with its benefits:
- flushes out toxins from the body
- may help to kill viruses, bacteria, and other pathogens
- balances out gut flora
- aids in digestion, and can reduce bloating
- Can help with balancing out cholesterol

As always, buy organic if you can
- Contains a sugar molecule that helps to draw water into the intestinal tract and aids peristalsis and digestion
- Helps with constipation (apple juice is usually given to babies to help with constipation for example)
- Contains pectin, a gelatinous polysaccharide that binds to cholesterol and can help slow glucose absorption

It is recommended that you buy apples that are organic, such that apples are classified as part of the “dirty dozen” and are prone to absorbing pesticides more readily. Other dirty dozen items include berries and spinach for example.
