Packed with protein, vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium, iron and fibre this salad is extremely healthy, nourishing and tasty. This refreshing salad is full of the goodness of apples, lettuce, celery and corn flakes and is served in a creamy and tangy basil flavoured dressing that is sweetened with grated apple.
Apply a little lemon juice to the apples before refrigerating to avoid discolouration due to exposure to air.
