Carrot celery and apple salad

This is one of the most simple and known recipe of autumn salads. I remember my mother doing it very often when I was a child and it was always a pleasure to find it ready in the fridge. This salad is a mix of vegetables and fruits. The apples gives a sweet and sour taste to the salad. The carrots are also giving sweetness and celery comes with aroma. The mayonnaise I keep it to the minimum to avoid that fruits and vegetable change their color.
I made a big salad, so if you want smaller quantities, just divide.
The recipe is also very permissive, meaning that you can adapt it as you want, on your own taste. You can put more apples, or carrots or celery. If you like more mayonnaise put more. I don't.

  • 860g knob celery - grated (weighted after peeling)
  • 570g carrots - grated (weighted after peeling)
  • 1000g apples - grated (weighted after peeling and cores removed) 
  • 400g lemon mayonnaise

  1. Grate the carrots and the celery and put them in a big salad bowl. I use a robot to grate everything because it is much faster, but a big normal grate is fine as well.
  2. Grate the apples. Let them be the last ones to grate to avoid darkening.
  3. Add the mayonnaise and stir everything well.
  4. Let the salad in the fridge for 3-4 hours at least for the apple juice to spread their sweetness.
The salad can be kept in the fridge for maximum one week if it is not eaten before.
