Crisp, crunchy, sweet, and bursting with flavor. That’s what apple and carrot salad tastes like with every bite. Instead of a slaw-like mayo dressing, we created a simple maple vinaigrette that brings all of the flavors together in this apple salad. You probably already have most of the ingredients on hand, and you can make it ahead of time for those busy, chaotic days.
